What happens when you turn down a $6,000,000,000 offer from Google?
Looking into my crystal ball, there are two potential outcomes:
1. They become your biggest competitor and eat you for breakfast.
2. Your two year old company, which has experienced the fastest growth of any company, EVER, currently valued at around $7.8 billion and still experiencing unprecedented growth rates, prepares for a $15 billion IPO (and thumbs its nose at the internet giant).
How do you see this playing out? Keep this in mind – the week after they turned down Google’s offer, Groupon signed up 4 million new email subscribers.
