The Reading Room – What’s the SCOOP?


By Philip Spagnoli Stoten Founder of SCOOP

Now in a regular Friday spot, this is the Reading Room, a weekly roundup of what we’ve been reading, watching and listening to. You can see these updates even more regularly if you follow me on LinkedIn or Twitter.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: According to Forbes, New Billionaire Daniel Dines is Boss of the Bots. Daniel Dines is Romania’s newest billionaire. UiPath, the company Dines cofounded, creates bots, or blocks of code that automatically carry out repetitive tasks. You might associate bots with Russian election ruses or customer service stand-ins, but UiPath recently garnered a $7 billion valuation by selling a more humdrum kind that can pull numbers from invoiced PDFs into accounting software, or process insurance claims.

PODCAST OF THE WEEK: In preparation for the Women in Tech sessions and the SCOOPstudio debate at SMTAi, I am listening to “The Female Founder”, a resource guide for all things entrepreneurial. On this podcast, you’ll hear inspiring stories from founders, investors, engineers, and movers and shakers in the startup ecosystem. Rachel Sipperley’s mission is to empower others to become Incredible entrepreneurs and provide tangible tips to turn ideas from dreams to reality.


That’s it until next week! For more regular musing connect or follow me on LinkedInor Twitter.
