💰 PayPal Slides into Pinterest DMs with $45B
Not a week goes by w/o our team raising our brows on another acquisition deal. This week's culprit? PayPal. They're eyeing up Pinterest for an easy $45 B e-transfer. Just another day in the office for these kids.
"But Kernal, PayPal isn't in interior design" – Hold our beer – They may not be the most active pinners on the block, but you can bet your bottom dollar they want a position in the skyrocketing e-commerce space. Pinterest would give them:
👑 We want your feedback
Feedback makes the startup world go round. Just like cash, feedback is critical to staying alive in startup land. If no one likes your hamburger recipe, you won't get any sales. If you're not listening to your customers, you're in danger of building a product no one cares about. So, to stay in better touch with our favourite users – aka YOU – we're launching a feedback portal.
- You are opening up this newsletter on your precious Friday morning
- You are posting your valuable startup ideas
- You are spreading the word about Kernal
Now we wanna work our butts off to make this a space you love and bookmark on your home page. 🙏 To make sure we follow through on that, we've launched our feedback portal where you can:
🏁 Make suggestions on how we can improve Kernal
🏁 Vote on the suggestions you'd like to see
🏁 View what's on deck for Kernal product drops
Test it out by sharing or voting on the suggestions that would make Kernal a destination that you return to every day. Remember, if you're opening this newsletter, we want your input. Without you, there's no Kernal. So cast your vote!
