Businessweek has a short profile on Pinterest, the startup that all geeks’ significant others love.
The nine-person startup has raised more than $37 million and now works out of an airy Palo Alto studio with two floors and a conference room. Like many local startups, it hasn’t made a cent. Silbermann mentions vague ideas about advertising. “People are planning their vacation, they are redecorating their home, they are planning their wardrobe,” he says. “They are going to Pinterest to get inspiration for the most important life projects, which correlate to the most important purchasing events in their life.”
Honestly, it was the strangest thing to hear about the latest tech startup from my wife. Really well done site though, and I can attest that many of the decorating ideas in our home came from the site.
