Hello Omni Talk Fans. The third edition of our startup newsletter is here. Special thanks to Omni Talk Contributor and loyal super fan Matt Bowen for helping us to put it all together for you.

These past few weeks have been quite the old reaffirmation of a few big trends we have been spotlighting in our podcasts for years.

Here were the Fast Five trends and startups making headlines:

  • Social Commerce: Snap acquired Fit Analytics in a move that it says will help them to execute on "next-gen shopping, fashion and style offerings" (Read More)

  • Digital Grocery: Store.ai secured $21 million in Series A funding to help give grocers the digital tools they need for front-end commerce and efficient picking and order fulfillment (Read More)
  • Text Commerce: Heyday grabbed another $6.5 million so its chatbots can sell us more stuff, a business that some say could reach $142 billion annually by 2024 (Read More)
  • And, Just Plain Old Working Smarter And Not Harder: Nuorder netted $45 million to help merchants make better and more efficient buying decisions (Read More)
