To anyone who did not catch it last night on Charlie Rose, below are some snippets from the Andrew Mason interview (Founder/CEO of Groupon), in which he describes the beginnings of his business and continued success.
This guy must be confident that he is heading in the right direction, considering he just turned down a $5 billion dollar buyout from Google.
In the videos below he describes the idea behind the business, and how it was successfully launched. The company’s growth is astounding. Groupon is now in 35 countries, with 40 million subscribers, and approximately 3 million new subscribers joining every week.
He also speaks about the benefits Groupon has had on local businesses, and his company’s very persuasive performance based marketing.
