TC+ Roundup: Breaking up is hard to doReading Time: 2 minutes
Good morning, everyone! It’s Friday!
Today I’m thinking about planning for the future. We plan for rain, we plan our meals for the week, and we even make long-term plans, like putting money into a 401(k). But sometimes things that should be planned for fall by the wayside.
Like founder breakups: You don’t go into a relationship thinking it’s going to end, but that doesn’t mean co-founders shouldn’t have a plan for going their separate ways if they need to. Having a strategy early on can help alleviate any issues down the road.
It’s also a good idea to create a succession plan. When the time comes for you to step down, it’s essential that everyone is on the same page about what your successor should be like. That starts with defining what the role is now and what it should be in the future.
Thanks for reading, and see you Tuesday!

AirLoom thinks it has a solution for both: Its wind farms use a smaller, more modular approach, with the goal of lowering the price of wind power to $13 per megawatt-hour. That could undercut traditional onshore wind by at least 50%. Sounds promising, right?
10 years since the term ‘unicorn’ was coined, we’ve almost come full circle
SBF said nothing and everything in his testimony, all at the same time
We’ve been closely following the trial of Sam Bankman-Fried, who is being accused of money laundering and defrauding customers during his time at the helm of FTX.
During his time on the stand, the former CEO said some version of ‘I don’t remember’ more than 300 times and ‘yup’ almost 400 times. It’s a good lesson in sidestepping questions if you’re ever on the stand for defrauding customers.
