The Sifted Podcast — could this startup birth the next era of Tesla rivals?

Crypto clubs, Tesla rivals and the gig economy's reckoning... oh my!

Listen to The Sifted Podcast on AppleSpotify and all major platforms.

On the latest episode of the pod we’re discussing the week’s biggest news, including the German government’s new pledge to unlock a €30bn financial boost to startups, Finnish quantum computing hardware provider IQM's €128m investment round — Europe’s largest quantum round to date — and photonics startup iPronics' €3.7m round to birth the next generation of Tesla rivals.

We also speak to Freya Pratty and Miriam Partington, who wrote a story about a new service for gig economy workers that's promising better pay transparency across the different apps they can work for.

Finally, Sifted Podcast producer Georgina Ustik interviews writer Éanna Kelly about the new wave of crypto clubs — exclusive spaces, both IRL and physical, that want to provide a Soho House experience for crypto holders.
