1) DoorDash offers more stock to new hires as falling share prices across tech industry pressure compensation plans
Titan’s Takeaway: The tech industry isn’t unique in paying staff with a mix of stock and cash, but competitive labor markets can change the amount of patience employees are willing to exhibit when it comes to pay. And after a decade of mostly unabated appreciation in tech stocks, it seems employee and employer expectations have grown out of line.
2) Didi shuts down operations in South Africa as ride-sharing markets continue to consolidate worldwide
Titan’s Takeaway: Amid China’s crackdown on some of its biggest tech companies, Didi faces unique challenges as it continues global expansion efforts. Didi’s retreat from South Africa also reinforces why Uber talks often about working to be first or second in each market where it has a presence — local ride-sharing dynamics suggest consumers like two choices, not three.
3) Disney moving ‘Dancing With The Stars’ to Disney+ in first push to bring live content to its streaming platform
Titan’s Takeaway: The strength of Disney’s library laid the groundwork for Disney+ to quickly become a clear number two streaming service behind Netflix. Leveraging its live content to continue driving growth will be a strategy that bears close watching in the coming years.
