So, it’s official. We’ve entered the bubble. LinkedIn’s IPO has heralded in 4 or 5 years of serious exit opportunity, before it all comes crashing down around us again. The BIG challenge now is going to be hiring, then holding on to great people.


A random round up of interesting happenings on the web.

The Groupon IPO filing has had lots of airplay this week. Apart from everything else, this really impressed us:

The company now has more than 8,000 employees worldwide, up from 37 employees two years ago. Via CNN

Another Groupon titbit, if you do a search for Eric Lefkofsky on Google, the second automatically generated result is “eric lefkosky fraud”. FYI, Eric is the main shareholder with almost 22% of Groupon. Via CNN

Paul Kedrosky posted Eric’s quotes from his Ha-Lo days in “Then and Now”. If you try and access the original link, it seems to have disappeared though…

We will watch the Groupon IPO with interest.
