This week, we are glad to have seasoned VC investor David Rosenthal join us to discuss the current state and the future of startups, investing, and innovation. Together, Scott and David talked about how the pandemic has changed startup funding, the emerging innovation categories, the merits of buying vs. building, and other key trends in the startup world that all innovation-minded brands should know.

As usual, Scott and Adam discuss this week’s top news before the main conversation, which includes Google Pay getting a redesign, CVS offering support for Venmo and PayPal at checkout, the launch of Amazon Pharmacy, and Lil Nas X’s virtual concerts in Roblox.
