The continuing saga of Ramridge Copse, and the bigger picture: unsympathetic management of ancient woodland and the felling of woodland during the bird breeding season. Woodlands have been on my mind recently, what with my growing interest in Rob’s local patch Ramridge Copse. Perhaps because of that when I glanced at my bookshelves the other […]

Scaleworks isn’t your typical venture company. The San Antonio-based private equity firm acquires startups with between $4 million and $10 million in annual run rate (ARR) and works to grow them, while additionally extending 12- to 16-month venture loans to B2B businesses as much as 6 times their monthly recurring revenue. Scaleworks bought eight companies with its first $60 million fund, which collectively grew 52% to $80 million in revenue last year. In February, it launched a second fund — this one totaling $80 million — to snatch up startups with greater than $4 million in ARR, and it announced one of the first acquisition targets today. Scaleworks says it has acquired SearchSpring, a privately funded Colorado-based ecommerce company that provides AI-powered search and navigation products to direct-to-consumer brands like Moen, Kate Somerville, Volcom, Wet Seal, Natori, Bikini.com, Wildfox, Lime Crime, Wine Enthusiast, Charles & Colvard, SaintBernard Sports, and Bethesda Game Studios. Since its founding in 2007, SearchSpring says it has powered over 9.2 billion searches. “After 11 years of operating independently as a bootstrapped company, SearchSpring will now have the backing of a team of technology veterans that share our passion for search, merchandising, and helping brands and retailers succeed online,” said CEO Gareth Dismore, who plans to leave the company. His replacement is Peter Messana, who previously spent time at Home Depot and GroupBy. A product search powered by SearchSpring. “While Amazon dominates ecommerce in many ways, the rise of the small direct-to-consumer player is a massive trend,” said Scaleworks general partner and cofounder Lew Moorman. “[SearchSpring] really hits all the key things we look for: great tech with opportunity to enhance the go-to-market approach, it’s a great size, and there is opportunity to specialize.” SearchSpring’s platform — which integrates with Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce, and Mivaworks — works by ingesting companies’ catalogs, using natural language processing to break terms into their component pieces, and thoroughly indexing those pieces to suss out relationships among them. It’s able to tell the difference between a shirt dress and a dress shirt, for instance, and to correct typos and mistakes in search queries while quietly hiding irrelevant product types and accessories in results. Moreover, it optionally boosts products with the highest conversion rate to the top and captures shopping behavior to supplement product data. SearchSpring joins recurring payments platform Chargify, content ingestion network provider Filestack, automated user research company Qualaroo, embedded analytics suite Keen, and office mail automation startup Earth Class Mail in Scaleworks’ growing portfolio. Among the firm’s successful exits to date are FollowUp, Mailgun, and Assembla.

Sinead reports Laurie to the police in Hollyoaks (Picture: Limehouse Pictures) Laurie Shelby was investigated by police after wife Sinead reported him for raping her, but a hole in her testimony could see the case fall at the first hurdle. In the latest episode of Hollyoaks, Sinead (Stephanie Davis) and Laurie (Kyle Pryor) were interviewed separately by police, along with Tony (Nick Pickard) and Diane (Alex Fletcher) after they were present when Sinead made her initial confession. While the interviews play out, DC Khan visits Sally St Claire, Mitchell Deveraux, Nancy Osborne and Sienna Blake following evidence Laurie has given, with Sally and Nancy shocked by the accusations against Laurie. Sinead’s case is seemingly strengthened after Tony and Diane reveal Laurie apologised if he ‘got carried away’ after Sinead told them she was raped. Laurie faces police interrogation (Picture: Lime Pictures) The odds, however, could tip against her when Sinead chooses to lie about when a ‘happy’ family photo was taken – realising it was taken shortly after the first time she was raped. [metro-tag-post-strip] She instead states the photo was taken days prior, but realises Laurie was away on a school trip that date when she returns home, and has an alibi. Could this be a key detail which discredits her accusations? And will Laurie use this as leverage to get away with the crime? Hollyoaks continues weekdays on E4 at 7pm.

Franz West (1947-2012) is best known for his unconventional objects and sculptures, installations and furniture work, which often require an involvement of the audience. This is a big exhibition, taking up no fewer than ten rooms at Tate Modern and the overwhelming impression you get is that West relished amateurishness, the cack-handed, graceless elevation of […]
