5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Should Be a True Story Movie
By DP on May 18, 2016
If you've ever considered investing in an IPO (Initial Public Offering) of a company about to go public, and it's a Technology StartUp, don't waste your money. I couldn't believe what I was reading of what really happens when a Tech company goes public. This book is non stop reading once you pick it up. At around 260 pages, easy to read font, you'll feel like you're right there at HubSpot with the author working at a playground. Kids are left to run a company started by adults for no other reason than to create a lot of hype that the company is important enough to go public. Companies without profits are being allowed to list on the stock exchange so venture capitalist and founders can get rich off of your money. There's absolutely no oversight or regulations to protect public investors who want to invest in an IPO and someone needs to go to prison as a result of whats happening. This book describes part two of "Wall Street Gone Wild" and it all starts in Silicon Valley where venture capital firms raise money from wealthy people to finance scams called Tech StartUps. When you hear that a company valuation is in the billions, don't believe it because it's just one opinion to create hype before a company goes public. There once was a time when a company had to show a profit before an IPO, "Not Anymore" as this book depicts. As an investor of a tech startup today, your money pays for beer, candy and play, all so a so called tech company can hire a bunch of kids who are willing to work cheap writing blogs and engaging in phone solicitations to sell a worthless cloud software product (SaaS) otherwise known as software as a service. Hold on to your money and read this this book is all I can say. As for HubSpot, the tech company where the author worked, it's losing borrowed money each day while it trades on the stock market, yet analyst tell you to buy it. In my opinion after reading this book, it's uncovered some things the tech industry and venture capitalist hoped the general public never knew.
