The Way To Do It

Posted: July 2, 2010 in Uncategorized

The machine in action: ITA hammered it.  Massive $100M Series A raise from the crew at Sequia and Catalyst and then in 2010 Google decides to pick them up for $700M after a year long bidding war with the usual suspects. Read it here:

ITA Exits at $700M

That said notice why they were bought:  The Data.  Data provisioning and categorization in a nice neat package.  Fluid data that empowered other sites.  Also note the nature of this deal.  People wonder why The Valley will always be on top.  Most will say because they had a head start.  I say because they will continue to invest in people and ideas.

Until Then,

Go Big Or Go Home,
