Billion Dollar Start-Ups Should Still Exist — Despite WeWork & Uber

With Uber’s dismal post IPO performance and WeWork’s botched IPO, plenty of people seem to be celebrating the fall of billion dollar start-ups and are happy to see these fairytale-like unicorn stories fail and fall flat on their face.

“I told you so” — is probably what they are saying to many people right now.

Honestly, I think many of these critics are just jealous that their start-ups or whatever that they are building or are part of can’t or can never command such huge valuations.

Billion Dollar Start-Ups Should Still Exist

The truth is, billion dollar start-ups should still exist.

Start-ups should still be able to raise hundreds of millions at billion dollar valuations, because there are still plenty of big problems in the world that could really use a much better solution that could make life much easier for everyone.

Innovative Start-Ups Solving Hard Global Problems Still Have Great Value

As long as the start-up is truly innovative, has a truly scalable and much better product that solves a big problem much better than anything that exists right now, they would be generating great value and would be really worth billions or if not hundreds of billions.

WeWork & Uber Are Bad Examples That Failed For Their Own Reasons — Period

WeWork and Uber are just 2 bad examples that failed for their own reasons, from a bad business model with narrow margins and a heavy physical aspect, being overvalued by investors, bad founder ethics, management practice and a variety of unique factors.

That does not mean that start-ups that generate true value and are solving big global problems in a truly innovative and scalable way won’t be truly worth hundreds of billions of dollars in the future.

They will, and there will be.
