"We are building a 100-year startup." ~Evernote CEO Phil Libin
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Evernote
He says they started Evernote "to help people remember everything."
Is it confidence or hubris they believe they're building a company they think will last a century?
Evernote now adds 40,000 users a day.
On that note, they raised another $100 million, and the company is worth $1 billion.
Total amount of money raised by Evernote so far: $195 million.
Mother of God.
This dwarfs the amount of venture capital raised by eBay ($5mm) and Google ($25mm). Will Evernote ever come close to making as much in revenues as eBay and Google? I sincerely doubt it.
