What we learned together on Network Capital this week?
Quick recap of the last 7 days

We publish 3 long-form essays every week along with a curated job board for our subscribers. Reading these newsletters will help build your category of one
💌 Is there a little bit of Anna in all of us? - The case of Anna Sorokin directs our attention towards unrestrained delusion coupled with “hard work” at the backend. She built her world - a fake but alluring one - and invited the high and mighty of New York to join. They laughed her off initially but in time, she had them chasing her for an entry pass.
💌 YouTube's Impact on Indian Economy - The genius of YouTube’s strategy is that it spends 0$ on content acquisition, unlike Netflix that spends billions of dollars on securing exclusive rights to marquee shows. What makes this even more interesting (from YouTube’s point of view) is that YouTube advertising dollars alone equal the entire revenue of Netflix.
💌 Spotify's Acquisition Spree and the "Facebook" of Music - With the acquisition of Podsights, Spotify will be able to help advertisers understand how podcast ads drive actions that matter to their businesses. Over time, it plans to extend these measurement capabilities beyond podcasts to the full scope of the Spotify platform, including audio ads within music, video ads, and display ads.
💌 The Incredible Women of Network Capital - We lost our chief mentor last week but her values will continue to inspire us to build a world where talent is equally distributed but opportunities are not. Women have shaped, built and scaled Network Capital into a global movement.
