Vivek Wadhwa and the Facebook IPO

Facebook and the big IPO letdown – The Washington Post.

Vivek’s commentaries are among the most stimulating out there. He only ever shoots from the hip. And, shifting metaphors, he knows his onions. As entrepreneur, biz school researcher in more of them than I can remember, and now leading academics at the singular Singularity University hosted by NASA Ames as well.

I hosted a teleconference with him last fall which gives the flavor of his thinking rather nicely. And now the Post has helpfully carried one of his characteristically sharp-edged opinions pieces on the IPO climate, not least as encouraged by  a recent statement from the President. “Everybody is going to be disappointed. We are not going to see the flood of IPOs that happened during the late 90’s.”
