Bazaarvoice Goes IPO
Feb 25 2012
Congratulations to the Bazaarvoice team! They are the latest Austin technology company to go public. It happened yesterday. I have friends who work there and I’m very happy for them. It takes a lot to go from zero to public and for Austin’s sake, I hope they continue their growth trend and create value. As I commented on the Austin Startup post on the topic, Bazaarvoice’s going public creates value not only for those who work there but also value in terms of dollars invested in future start-ups and experienced people to advise/mentor them.
The founding team also emphasized building a positive culture and showed that policies like having no set vacation days can work when you trust your people. It will be nice to have people in the community who have experienced that kind of culture go seed other companies.
Their success is Austin’s success!Author: Aruni | Filed under: entrepreneur, entrepreneurship, social media, social networks, success | Tags: austin startup, bazaarvoice, IPO | 2 Comments »
