007 Uber - The Status Quo
Uber, one of the most anticipated start-up unicorn IPO in recent history, goes public and much excitement and questions surrounds this event. Jake and Dario give their two cents on Uber and how their IPO will compare to the recent Lyft IPO. Will the public markets accept another sharing economy business and can they get to profitability within the near future? Riding sharing companies also face a "striking" labor (capital) force who are fighting for better pay and treatment from a company set to make millions by going public. All this and more on this episode of The Status Quo Podcast! **Editor's Note: Recording took place on 5/8/19, Uber went public on 5/10/19, and the podcast is airing on 5/14/19. Uber's stock has seen significant drop in share price from it's IPO and from subsequent market closings.

006 Hygge - Garrett Tichy - The Status Quo
Co-working has been gaining steam in recent history and has been a staple piece to the sharing economy. Most people will know of this phenomenon from the co-working giant WeWork, but plenty of smaller companies are building AMAZING companies and brands. One of these great companies is Hygge Coworking (pronouced hoo-ga) based out of Charlotte, NC which has grown to over five locations in under four years! Garrett Tichy, Hygge's Founder, joins The Status Quo Podcast to talk how he got started in the business, the state of coworking, and how he does see himself going anywhere anytime soon. Hygge is a Danish word acknowledging a feeling or moment as being cozy or special, which is exactly what Garrett has built through the Hygge Community and stands as their key differentiator in an increasingly nosy sector.  Web: https://wearehygge.com/ IG: https://www.instagram.com/hyggeclt/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HyggeCoworking/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/hygge-coworking/
