The best and worst cities for remote workers - Axios

Image
Businesses based in Columbus, Ohio, are the most friendly to fully remote positions, followed by San Diego, Phoenix, St. Louis and San Francisco. Why it matters: Even as many employees hope to continue to work remotely after offices reopen, not all businesses are on board. By the numbers: Telstra Ventures analyzed 371,000 jobs posted between April 1 and June 30, 2021. About 13.2% of New York City-based businesses offer permanently remote positions to new hires. That's below the national average of 14.2%. Other major cities: About 12.6% of new job postings are remote-friendly in Los Angeles. In Washington, D.C., the number is 12%, Atlanta is 9.1% and Seattle is 8.1%. Houston is the least remote-friendly city, with only 2.8% of jobs posted being remote. Venture-backed companies nationally tend to be more open to remote jobs and have quickly ramped up their embrace of remote work, per the analysis.

Image
Divibank, a financing platform offering LatAm businesses access to growth capital, has closed on a $3.6 million round of seed funding led by San Francisco-based Better Tomorrow Ventures (BTV). São Paulo-based Divibank was founded in March 2020, right as the COVID-pandemic was starting. The company has built a data-driven financing platform aimed at giving businesses access to non-dilutive capital to finance their growth via revenue-share financing. "We are changing the way entrepreneurs scale their online businesses by providing quick and affordable capital to startups and SMEs in Latin America," said co-founder and CEO Jaime Taboada. In particular, Divibank is targeting e-commerce and SaaS companies although it also counts edtechs, fintechs and marketplaces among its clients. The company is now also offering marketing analytics software for its clients so they can "get more value out of the capital they receive." A slew of other investors participa

(StormX Photo) More than a year after shutting down his popular Korean-Mexican food truck and catering business Bomba Fusion, Seattle entrepreneur Simon Yu checked in from Mexico, where he's working remotely, and the subject turned to food. "I had tacos here yesterday. I love Mexican food," Yu said. "I still think our tacos are really good. The combination of Mexican and Korean food — it just goes so well together." Yu may be done making tacos for tech workers in Seattle, but he's plenty busy cooking up another success story with his current startup, StormX, a cryptocurrency platform he co-founded in 2015. And he's still feasting on the lessons of persistence he learned along the way while struggling to make ends meet as a University of Washington student. Earlier this month

Florida Funders invested $250,000 in vigtec.io, which was founded in 2019 and is headquartered in Tampa, although its 15 staff members are scattered around the country. The fund, the release stated, will be used to help the company complete work on its Android mobile app (it's already available for iOS devices) and data visualization tools, as well as grow its global user base. Vigtec.io's platform is aimed at retail or "do-it-yourself" investors who want to trade securities but don't want to pay fees to an investment advisor or be affiliated with a traditional financial institution.
