It seems like in Silicon Valley is starting a SPAC. Reid Hoffman, Peter Thiel, Kevin Hartz, Chamath Palihapitiya, maybe even your roommate.

Reporters Cory Weinberg and Ross Matican trace the origins of the SPAC surge. We explain why these special-purpose acquisition companies have become so popular, some of the regulatory history, and what some of the downsides are. 

In this episode, we talked to:

  • George Arison, co-CEO of Shift Technologies
  • Milos Vulanovic, associate of corporate finance at EDHEC Business School
  • Thomas Hennessy, co-CEO and president of PropTech Acquisition Corporation
  • Jay Heller, head of capital markets & IPO expansion at Nasdaq
