New investment firm wants to change the way we fund early stage companies from New Hampshire

The three founders of York IE have a vision about how to change the way early stage startups get funding. They have experience shattering norms, having built a successful startup, Dyn, in Manchester, New Hampshire, which is not exactly a hot-bed of startup activity. The founders want to take that same spirit and apply it to investing, while maintaining its headquarters in New Hampshire (and Boston). In fact, the three founders — Kyle York, Joe Raczka and Adam Coughlin — were early Dyn employees and helped built it to $30 million in ARR before taking a dime in venture funding. They went onto raise $100 million before being acquired by Oracle in 2016. They believe they can apply the lessons …

Disney CEO Bob Iger resigns from Apples board of directors

Disney CEO Bob Iger has resigned from Apple’s board of directors, according to a just-published SEC filing. Neither company has given any reason for the departure — the explanatory text of the SEC filing is literally just “On September 10, 2019, Bob Iger resigned from the Board of Directors of Apple Inc.” — but with Disney and Apple both prepping to launch their own video streaming services in November, it may be that there’s starting to be too much overlap. Given that the services are called “Disney+” and “Apple TV+” respectively, it’s easy to see where things might start to get too muddled. Iger originally joined Apple’s board in November of 2011. Apple’s Board of Directors now has seven members: …

Shares of  TC: Where does one go for these roadshows?

Fact-check: Democratic debate from Houston

Washington (CNN)Welcome to CNN’s fact check of the third Democratic presidential primary debate. We will be posting our checks of candidates’ claims as we complete them. Here are the facts. How many people would be covered under Biden’s health care plan Castro attacked Biden’s health care plan, saying “the problem with your plan is that it leaves 10 million uncovered.” Facts First: Castro is right. It’s not the first time a Democratic contender has criticized Biden’s plan. Harris made an issue of it on the debate stage in Detroit.

Mercury Found In Skin Of English Channel Dolphins Among Highest Observed In Species

We’ve known for years that waste from humans can be detected in the creatures around us, from sea critters in the depths of the oceans to birds perched atop towering trees. Such repercussions are especially true for bottlenose dolphins, whose skin and blubber accumulate industrial fluids and mercury as they glide through contaminated waters and eat prey. Now, scientists say they’ve measured some of the highest concentrations of mercury observed in the species. Bottlenose dolphins have the ignoble honor of being a prime species for investigating contamination trends in coastal areas due to their fondness for estuaries and nearshore waters. Their long lives, habitat, and high trophic position in the marine food web combine to create the perfect storm for pollutants to …

WeWork has become poster child for everything wrong with tech unicorns

New York (CNN Business)WeWork was supposed to be one of the most high-profile Wall Street debuts of the year. Instead, it’s rapidly shaping up to be one of the most high-profile IPO debacles in recent memory. A spokesperson for WeWork declined to comment for this story, citing quiet period rules ahead of a public offering. WeWork is effectively fielding intense scrutiny and criticism less for being an anomaly in the tech industry than for the many ways it is a poster child for the worst excesses of other tech unicorns — the term used for private companies valued at $1 billion or more — going public this year. Like Uber (UBER), The We Company lost well over $1 billion in …
