1. Chekin gets €460,000 for marketing and product customisation hotelero🗝️.

Chekin makes real what many of us may have thought during a holiday😎🩴: you are at the reception of a hotel, you queue up and you have 3 families 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 of 5 people each in front of you and you have to wait 🫷🏼. Couldn't this check-in thing really be automated? Do you really have to scan ID cards or passports as if it were the 28th of July today, but in 2003? 👱🏾‍♀️

In addition to imagining it, they have done it conseguido💪🏼. Until now, chekin's value proposition has been oriented towards tourist rental properties. In this way, the reception and check-in of users became fully automated🧨.

It is precisely this point, automation🤖, that is the key to their success. It is now that they have raised 460,000€ to invest in marketing and sales and to focus on their new commercial target: hotels🏨. Hopefully we will soon move from 2003 to 2023 and at reception all that happens is a welcome, explanations about the hotel and human treatment. Goodbye escáner👋🏼📠.

👉🏻 Read here the news about the round for chekin in El Referente💸. 👉🏻 Here you can meet chekin. By the way, we love their website😍: clean design and organisation of information and funnels well trabajados👌🏼. 👉🏻 Here you can watch the webinar that Dozen and chekin organised before getting 100% of the investment through the Dozen investment platform 🎙️ (it lasts an hour, but you can watch it when you finish reading the digest 👀).

2. If your startup is a SaaS (or will be) Capchase Pay advances you the subscriptions of your users💰.

Capchase, a Spanish company specialised in offering alternative financing with a non-dilutive approach for startups, launches its new product: Capchase Pay💸.

The company aspires to be one of the next national unicorns 🦄🇪🇸 during this year and its focus is to help improve sales cycles📆, cash flow 🕳️ and what they call growth finance⚙️, all this focused on startups and SaaS companies that have recurring and precedible📐 revenue, which is the asset they optimise.

In this case, Capchase Pay offers to advance the expected annual subscription revenue while the customer can continue to pay flexibly😌, monthly or quarterly.

👉🏻 Here the news about the launch of Capchase Pay in La Razón and explained super well 💬 by its co-founder, Ignacio Moreno. 👉🏻 If you are thinking of creating a SaaS startup 👨🏻‍💻 (either for companies or for individuals), I will tell you that it is one of the fastest expanding models 🏎️ that exist.

3. Neither Elon nor Elan: Twitter is about to get a new CEO and it's a woman: betting pools at marcha👩🏻‍💼.

Elon Musk announced yesterday that the deal was done. The new CEO is a woman and would begin her reign 👸🏻 on Twitter in about 6 weeks. It is not that he will stop swarming Twitter, but he will do it in specific areas and (in principle) leaves the leadership of the platform in the hands of a person not yet confirmada🥷🏼.

The rumours are divided between Linda Yaccarino and other options, but in the last few hours this is the name that has been gaining the most momentum. She is currently Advertising Director of NBCUniversal📺. And it is just this good reputation and relationships with advertisers 🤝 what would give her the business focus that Twitter has needed for months💼.

Why hasn't Musk unveiled it? According to The Verge, because Linda has to present results 💁🏻‍♀️ to her (still) NBCUniversal advertisers on Monday and maybe things need to be done halfway bien🙏🏻.

There is hope 👏🏼 for a platform that we don't want to lose but needs to get back on a reasonable course🤔.

👉🏻 Here are the betting pools on who is the new CEO of Twitter🎰.

👉🏻 Here's a profile of Linda Yaccarino (she's a boss! 💅🏼).

👉🏻 Here is Elon Musk's tweet where he starts talking about hiring a new CEO but ends up talking about himself 😘🪞.

4. Artifact: the social network from the creators of Instagram that summarises news as if you had 5 añitos🧒🏼.

Some time ago the founders of Instagram launched Artifact: a text-based social network that offers a news feed with content from the writers📝 and creators you are most interested in🤩.

They have also added AI to their tool and you can ask it to summarise a news story and explain it to you as if you were 5 years old🤖😖.

In the news example, the news is summarised like this: Netflix will spend a lot of money to make even more Korean series and movies. It does it because people love them. **👎🏼 Wow 👎🏼.

It is possible that in certain long and complex texts, especially in those that are alien to our discipline🤯, it makes some sense and we applaud it, because the alternative would be not to read it or not to learn anything😣.

However, an article that we read in this way, without reasons and without nuance, what good is it to us 🙃 If Netflix spends a lot on Korean series it's because people like them. OKEY. But there's probably a lot more to be gleaned from the statements or figures the company offers in that statement🧐.

And besides, what is the author writing for, to be so minimised that the meaning is ridiculous? 🕴🏻Ojalá serves to open us to new sciences 👩🏻‍🏫 and specialities that we don't control because nobody explained them to us like a 5 year old child.

👉🏻 Here if you want to try Artifact and have a look at vistazo⚡️.

👉🏻 Here is the news about the use of AI in its latest release😎.

5. Record FoodTech investment in 2022: when plant protein ate meat🥩😭.

This article from Sifted tells us about record investment and growth in FoodTech in Europe in 2022. Over the past year we have reported on different investments and milestones achieved by national companies dedicated to the cultivation and commercialisation of alternative proteins🤓.

Now, Sifted has compiled this information which is extremely interesting to understand what is going on in the FoodTech sector and why it is petando🙌🏼.

Some interesting points: that FoodTech 🍱 is winning by a landslide over AgriTech🌾 or that Cell-Based 🧪 proteins (produced from animal cells, replicated in laboratories) are growing more than Plant-Based (proteins that emulate the taste or texture of animal meat, but of plant origin🥬).

👉🏻 Here is the article on FoodTech with figures, investments and other info on Sifted.
