Good Morning,

Welcome to the Q3 edition of Cut Through Quarterly, replacing our monthly report. A special welcome to our new long-term supporter HSBC. And a big thanks to the 161 startup investors who completed our investor sentiment survey.

It was a mildly slower quarter than Q2 from a funding announcement perspective, however, Q3 delivered enough to edge 2023 inches ahead of the first three quarters of 2020. What was most encouraging, though, was the sizable shift in investor sentiment measured in our survey.

We hope you find the report useful. You can read the report here, or here.

While we have you... for all the Sydney-siders, we're excited to be cohosting a huge event with our friends from Aftwork Ventures, Techstars, and Verve Money on October 17th. There will be comedy, there will be debunking of startup folklore, and there will be dancing.

Grab your ticket before they run out.
