SPACs & King JR Meals Reach New Heights: PL;DR 5/14

SPACs & King JR Meals Reach New Heights: PL;DR 5/14

Discover the latest in tech and investment news with the PL;DR from Partnership Leaders.

This week we saw just how drastically prices can swing when supply isn’t guaranteed. After a ransomware attack compromised the Colonial Pipeline, there were hundreds of cars lining up at gas stations this week, with officials advising against filling plastic bags with extra gas. We’re officially 14 months into quarantine, but it’s hard not to have flashbacks of last year’s toilet paper hoarding crisis. 


This has brought to light an interesting marketing opportunity. On the topic, we’ll just say there will always be plenty of PL;DR to go around on Friday mornings.

As you reminisce on the craziness of the past few months (and hopefully don’t have to fight anyone for a tank of gas), here are a few things we’ve been thinking about this week.

PartnerStack is proud to support the PL;DR!
