Careful what you wish against: Silicon Valley just rolled out a red carpet to government regulation | PandoDaily
I never thought I’d write these words: Sometimes the public markets is the best thing that can happen to a hot company. [...] Today, Uber running a different playbook than even Facebook. First, it has controlled access to liquidity much more than Facebook ever did. But, by contrast, the company’s access to capital has been an exaggeration of Facebook’s already prodigious fundraising path. Uber has wholly embraced the notion of raising gargantuan amounts of money at jaw-dropping late stage valuations as an avenue to put off an IPO, seemingly indefinitely if it wants. That should suit a CEO like Uber’s Travis Kalanick who bristles at anyone telling him how to do his job and hates government regulation. Importantly, Uber is the first unicorn of the mobile-first era. [...] Uber’s investors have exerted no pressure on the Valley darling. [...] Reckless disregard for customers.
