Leveraging Technology: LinkedIn

The success of the LinkedIn IPO last night prompted me to read the prospectus this morning (ideally it works the other way around). The revenue model as detailed in the prospectus is HERE.

I’ve been vaguely aware of the business over time as emails have arrived with an invitation to join, or as I have been looking for people and been directed to their LinkedIn profile. The $9b USD market cap at last night’s closing price certainly got me thinking though. If over time the fundamentals of the business can support this valuation it seems to have some implications for increasingly how employers and job searchers will connect.  Seek’s position on LinkedIn as presented in their investor day on May 3rd 2011 is HERE.
