Work Management Software You may be on to the effectiveness of project management software to keep your team on track, but what are you doing to ensure emails, meetings, and the in-between are in check? Paymo makes a case for work management software to aid in this - and how using both to fill in unavoidable gaps gives you the freedom to begin with an individual task, work on it, develop it over time, and even turn it into a project where need be.

"Answering emails daily, sending out invoices, or buying new office supplies will never become a project."

WaitWhat? $4.3 Mill? On the go listening is still very much raging in the educational and entertainment spaces, and yet another podcast mogul is stacking up investments. WaitWhat, the content production engine behind Reid Hoffman's (LinkedIn Co Founder) Masters of Scale podcast, just completed their Series A round, racking up a sweet $4.3 million.

SoftBank Funds Logistics We read through TechCrunch's transportation weekly and sniffed out this tidbit: SoftBank led a $1 billion dollar funding initiative in Flexport, a full-service air and freight forwarder. This isn't SoftBank's first time taking a dip in the transport/logistics pool, though. They've collaborated with companies like Uber, DoorDash, and even automated delivery robot startups.  

"Transportation and logistics are massive markets that are being disrupted by technology."
