I recently read about the increasing interest in investing in hot private tech companies, with a fund composed of 23 of the hottest private tech companies being launched and receiving a positive response from investors. It was advised to take a wait-and-see approach before investing. Additionally, there was news about the rising HSA contribution limits for 2025, providing significant tax benefits. Another topic covered was the best places to retire in the U.S., with factors such as tax costs, living expenses, quality medical care, and recreational opportunities being taken into consideration.

In another article, French AI startups were highlighted, with Mistral AI raising €600 million and being just one of many AI startups in Paris. The growth of French AI startups was attributed to factors such as strong math and engineering programs in French universities, the presence of AI research labs by companies like Meta and Google, and government support for the tech and startup industry. French AI startups were also said to be increasingly attracting attention from investors worldwide.

Lastly, there was news about an upcoming live course on SaaS metrics, covering topics like sales compensation and the sales/finance relationship, as well as a white paper on streamlining expense management in SaaS companies. The course was said to include a new program called the SaaS Metrics Accelerator, providing valuable insights for those looking to level up their SaaS metrics knowledge.

Stay Well!
