Unicorns aren’t profitable — Wall Street doesn’t care

In Silicon Valley, investors don’t expect their portfolio companies to be profitable. “Blitzscaling: The Lightning-Fast Path to Building Massively Valuable Companies,” a bible for founders, instead calls for heavy spending on growth to scale in an Amazon -like fashion. As for Wall Street, it’s shown an affinity for stock in Jeff Bezos’ business, despite the many years it spent navigating a path to profitability, as well as other money-losing endeavors. Why? Because it too is far less concerned...

Pinterest’s IPO structure could give CEO Ben Silbermann the right to control the company from beyond the grave

Pinterest's S-1, publicly filed on Friday, revealed a unique share structure. The company has dual-class shares, which give some shareholders, like founding CEO Ben Silbermann, greater voting powers than other investors. But the structure also gives Silbermann's estate the ability to retain its extra voting superpowers for between 90 days and 540 days after his death.  Silicon Valley's power players are already preparing for the grim spectre of mortality.  Pinterest's S-1 paperwork, filed pub...

This is how much money Pinterest execs made last year

Silicon Valley is known for its massive wealth. When these companies file to go public, we all finally get to know how much money these executives take home each year, and the millions they’ll take home after the IPO.

Flight-hailing startup Blackbird raises $10 million to replace driving with flying

The origin story of Blackbird, a startup that links travelers to planes and commercial pilots through an app, didn’t begin with air travel. It was prompted by car sickness. Blackbird CEO and founder Rudd Davis, who was getting his pilot’s license at the time, asked his flight instructor if he would fly his family to Tahoe because his son gets terribly sick every time they traveled by car. What Rudd discovered was an incredible experience that was far more affordable than he realized.  Davis la...
