The Algorithm is the Thing -- How a Tech Company went from Chasing an IPO to Failure.
The excess of the early 2000's was something to behold. Lying between the so-called Great Moderation of the 1990's and the Great Recession of 2008, money was flowing into the economy from everywhere. Spending was the order of the day, whether for consumer goods, automobiles, houses, or you name it. There would always be more money it seemed, and few wanted to be left out. Investors were no exception, nor were their portfolio companies. If a business was good at selling ... say, seafood ... then why not truffles. Food is food, and markets are markets. What could possibly go wrong? Join us in a discussion with Greg Belanger and learn how a would-be-Amazon went from a garage to chasing an IPO to failure -- all, in the blink of an eye.
