MintzTech Connect: All Things Technology — August 2021

We hope you are enjoying your summer. Venture capital financing activity continues at a record pace, and there is no letup of start-ups launching, growing businesses being funded, and mature enterprises exiting at healthy valuations. For those of our readers playing in the technology sectors, it has been a busy and exciting time. Hopefully, as the world continues to reopen in the fall, this momentum will continue. To date, the fears of inflation have not dampened the funding of technology companies.

In this edition of MintzTech Connect, we lead off with an alert about ransomware. This is a serious problem and should be on the radar of all enterprises. Our second feature is a video regarding mandatory vaccinations for those returning to private offices. This is very relevant to all of us moving back to some form of an in-person or hybrid work environment.

In addition, we are including two company spotlights: EcoCart – an e-commerce plugin for merchants to offer carbon-neutral orders; and Stavvy – an innovative fintech company that provides a collaborative platform for lenders, title agents, attorneys, notaries, settlement agents, borrowers, and other stakeholders in real estate transactions.

Be safe and be well, 
Dan + Sam
