The layoff blues are back

I've been fortunate enough to never have been laid off in my short time as a working adult, but I remember when my dad got retrenched many years ago.

I didn't fully understand the weight of it at the time, but looking back, my parents had clearly been stressed out - with three kids in school and a mortgage for a new house to pay off, who wouldn't be? So we did what we could to save every cent that came our way.

Eventually, my dad got another job, and we made it through those tough times. But now that chatter of a coming recession is growing louder, I can't help but think back to those years.

On a related note, we've recently published a visual story where we keep track of the layoffs taking place across Asia's startup scene. Hopefully, this can serve as a useful reference for you, whether you're a VC, a startup founder, an employee, or a jobseeker.
You can find all other important investment deals that happened in the last few days in our weekly funding news wrap-up.

Let's dive into the biggest deals and M&As that recently took place.

The insurance innovation revolution

The insurance industry has seen several innovations in recent years in response to changing consumer habits and preferences. But arguably one of the most revolutionary changes to the scene is the introduction of embedded insurance.

In a push toward adopting a user-first, omnichannel approach to insurance distribution, leading firms are providing their customers coverage at the precise moments when they need it.

Now, instead of having to get a policy for any of their purchases, customers can simply opt to insure their orders when they make them.

This is just one of the many innovations that will be discussed at the world's largest insurtech event, InsureTech Connect Asia 2022. From June 7 to 9, tech entrepreneurs, investors, and insurance industry incumbents from all over the world will gather at the Suntec Convention Centre in Singapore to showcase new innovations, share how they increase productivity and reduce costs, and discuss the ways they're working to enrich the lives of their policyholders.

Register now for InsureTech Connect Asia 2022 to get a glimpse into the future of insurance.
