Yelp 的故事
Yelp 的故事
The Company: Yelp.com is trying to remake the Yellow Pages business and grab a slice of the $92 billion local advertising market. People review everything from their doctors to hot new clubs. It's a go-to site for hip 20-somethings in San Francisco, and is starting to expand to New York, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, and Los Angeles. It has more than 1 million visitors per month who have posted some 150,000 reviews. But Yelp.com still has to prove its formula works in other cities. Funding: Yelp raised $1 million from PayPal founder Max Levchin in 2003, and $5 million from Bessemer Partners in 2005. Background Check: Simmons graduated from the prestigious Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy at 16 and was the first engineer Levchin hired. Stoppelman, also from PayPal, is the token Harvard MBA drop-out of the bunch. He would swipe his father's business magazines, and invest his allowance in hot stocks -- usually tech companies. images.businessweek.com/ss/06/08/valleyboys/index_01.htm

Yelp.com 的两个家伙
Yelp.com 的两个家伙
On a chilly Saturday evening in San Francisco, Yelp.com founders Russel Simmons and Jeremy Stoppelman were hosting a loft party to watch an annual fireworks show. Crammed into the tight space were thirtysomethings from the first Internet wave such as James Hong, who started online dating site Hot or Not in 2000, and his close friend Max Levchin, who co-founded PayPal and sold it to eBay in 2002 for a cool $1.5 billion. Jonathan Abrams, who started Friendster, the first hyped social networking site, was there too, as were Digg's Kevin Rose (left) and several up and coming Google-ites. It was a rare Internet all-star party—the kind of gathering not seen for years in the valley. Yet this is hardly 1999-redux. It’s the new Internet scene, a tenuous balance between growing hype and harsh memories from the dot-com bust of 2000. These aren't the khaki-clad MBA dropouts that clogged Highway 101 six years ago. They're the geeks who write code because they love tech and the Internet. The memory of &quotthe bust,&quot as it's called in Silicon Valley, is still fresh and most of these entrepreneurs, young as they are, lived through it. They’ve learned harsh lessons about relying on paper riches, spending millions on lavish offices, and giving too much power to the venture capital set. As they build what they hope will be the next big Internet powerhouses, they vow to do it all differently.
