Welcome to Startups Weekly, a nuanced take on this week’s startup news and trends by Senior Reporter and Equity co-host Natasha Mascarenhas. To get this in your inbox, subscribe here . Maybe it’s the fact that “Succession” is back next week, or maybe it’s the fact that Silicon Valley just experienced its first banking crisis, but I want to talk about the line of descent in startups. As I write in my latest: Silicon Valley Bank is a good reminder that startups, often entrenched in the world of risk and scrappiness, sometimes forget to think about the obvious: single points of failure. But just like it makes sense to rely on a community-friendly bank, so does entrusting a single person to lead your business to success. Now that we’ve seen the former not really work out, perhaps it’s time to rethink the latter. For my full take on the new worry that founders should be thinking through, read: “Banking isn’t the only ‘single point of failure’ entrepreneurs should be rethinking.”  For more, read about the crypto corner , my latest snapshot of founder sentiment,   the impact on Black founders  and this timeline on all that has unfolded thus far
