Fewer than 20 of the last 500 IPOs have reached $1b in revenue

So look, if you’re in Palo Alto covering the music business you were occasionally going to drift off into Barron‘s magazine roundtable on VC. And then gratuitously plug a relatively anonymous tacky who plays a pretty mean guitar and vocal from MIT, Sophie Diehl — get it there’s a pond there —  of time cat —  A band that covered grateful dead Althea and horse over something about his father — But I am also guessing she works for Stripe which started in 2010 has raised 685m$ and has a unicorn valuation of 20b$.  I also bought a photograph on the wall of the revolution café from Marco and Rae  of a young boy in a Chinese school saluting to power.  He works for Apple   So I’ll have to rethink my theory about Silicon Valley draining talent from culture to industry.   Weird Segway but I stumbled into Adobe Books & Arts Cooperative via Square which are on paper not silicon nor Clay And discovered some live music including an upcoming show with someone who looks kind of cool, TK


OK this is neither a baby band knew her unicorn but a manikin or if Emma can on mission near 22
