12 tricks Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, and other famous execs used to run meetings

At Amazon, people aren't only expected to participate in meetings, they're obliged to speak up if they disagree with something that was said. Getty Images The overwhelming majority of business leaders find most meetings largely unproductive, per a 2017 survey conducted by the Harvard Business Review. Unproductive meetings are usually caused by having too many people in the room, not having an agenda, or simply meeting too often. Successful executives like Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and...

The '2 pizza rule' is a secret to productive meetings that helped Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos become one of the world's richest men. Here's why it's smart.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is the richest person, with a net worth of $189.2 billion. Bezos has said he keeps meetings to a minimum.

Keith Rabois joins Founders Fund amid transition at the firm

Longtime investor Keith Rabois is joining Founders Fund as a general partner, the firm let us know today. He brings its total number of partners to nine. According to Founders Fund, Rabois will invest across sectors and stages, like all members of its investment team. The move is wholly unsurprising in ways, though the timing seems to suggest that another big fund from Founders Fund is around the corner, as the firm is also bringing aboard a new principal at the same time —  Delian Asparou...

One of Yelp's biggest investors says its patience has 'worn out,' and is urging management to make changes or sell the company (YELP)

One of Yelp's largest shareholders, SQN Investors LP, urged management to refresh its board of directors to create significant value for investors. If not, SQN says it should sell the company. Yelp traded above $90 a share back in 2014 when there were fewer business ratings and reviews platforms. But shares have since tanked more than 60%. SQN said the stock's underperformance is largely due to poor corporate governance, and said it is prepared to launch a proxy fight if the board doesn’t make...

Khosla GP launches Bling Capital to help seed-stage startups build products

At Facebook, where he was the first-ever director of platform, they called him Bling. At YouTube the following year, they still called him Bling. At Google in 2010, they continued to call him Bling. Even at Khosla Ventures, where Ben Ling has been a general partner for the past five years, the nickname stuck. It was only natural that Bling Capital would be the name of his debut venture capital fund, a $60 million seed-stage vehicle backed by Marissa Mayer, Nellie and Max Levchin, Yelp CEO Jer...

Are TripAdvisor and Yelp credible?

The more skeptical among us would have you believe that online review sites are all fake news. TripAdvisor is full of good reviews businesses pay for. Yelp is an online mafia of extortionists. In an era when anybody can pretty much say anything online and people will believe it, it’s hard to know how much of what we see on online review sites is true. Equally as difficult is determining how many allegations of review fraud are also true. Are review sites completely discredited? Or are they st...

Mithril Capital Management, cofounded by Ajay Royan and Peter Thiel, is leaving the Bay Area

From its glass-lined offices in San Francisco’s leafy Presidio national park, six-year-old Mithril Capital Management has happily flown under the radar. Now it’s leaving altogether and relocating its team to Austin, a spot that has “enough critical mass of a technical culture, an artisanal culture, an artistic culture, and [is] not necessarily looking to Silicon Valley for validation,” says firm cofounder Ajay Royan. The move isn’t a complete surprise. Royan, who cofounded the growth-stage in...

Yelp's PR boss quietly switched sides, and left to join the 'completely anti-competitive' Google (GOOG, GOOGL)

The relationship between Google and Yelp has long been acrimonious, ever since Yelp began accusing Google of tweaking searches to favor its own content ahead of competitors. Despite the bad blood between the companies, a former top Yelp communications manager is now working for the company's nemesis.  The move comes as European Union continues to turn a sympathetic ear to some of Google's competitors. Yelp's head of corporate communications recently left the company. But what's really intere...

Yelp Files New EU Complaint Against Google Over Search Dominance

Yelp has filed a complaint with the EU's antitrust watchdog against Google, arguing that the search company has abused its dominance in local search and pressuring Brussels to launch new charges against the tech giant, Financial Times reported Tuesday. From the report: European antitrust authorities fined Google $2.8B in June 2017 for favouring its own shopping service over rival offerings in its search results. Google denied wrongdoing and has appealed that decision. Now Yelp, which provides us...

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Wants Justice Department To Scrutinize Big Tech

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Monday joined the growing chorus of government officials concerned about tech monopolies. From a report: When asked if Google is a monopoly, Mnuchin said, "These are issues that the Justice Department needs to look at seriously -- not for any one company -- but obviously as these technology companies have a greater and greater impact on the economy, I think that you have to look at the power they have," Mnuchin told CNBC's "Squawk Box."

Judging The Value Of Online Review Platforms For Businesses

Before online review platforms, obtaining trustworthy reviews on a business was usually quite difficult. A customer would generally only have the information given to them by companies. Customers might be able to obtain information about companies from friends and family. In some cases, customers could obtain reviews about particular types of businesses such as Zagat’s book of reviews on restaurants. Mostly, customers would need to rely on intuition much more in the decision making process. With...

Why Yelp, Organovo Holdings, and Ubiquiti Networks Slumped Today

The stock market again reached record highs on Friday, building on its positive momentum from earlier in the week. Investors were generally upbeat about the health of the U.S. economy and were optimistic that changes in federal government policy could spur another leg up in the expansion. Oil prices once again rose as well, providing some upward momentum from the energy markets.

'Paranoid Republicans' are reportedly using an app that auto-deletes messages over hacking fears

In 2016, the emails of Democratic Party officials were hacked and leaked to Wikileaks — an incident that defined the US presidential election and helped Donald Trump achieve his shock victory over establishment favourite Hillary Clinton. Republicans are now determined not to let the same happen to them. Axios' Jonathan Swan and David McAbe are reporting that some members of Trump's administration and other senior Republican officials have taken up using Confide, a secrecy-focused messaging app b...
