Haven’t had too much time to blog here again. With iLetYou launched, I’m laser/super/high/all focused on some pressing priorities. On that note, I blogged about two big fundings by Chegg and HomeAway in just the past 2 days. It’s evident a change is happening.

Etsy, a company I’ve always been a big fan of, just announced a big $27 million funding round. If you’re skeptical that quality businesses can succeed, here’s a fun post on Etsy blog
about the funding. Indeed, the transparency is remarkable.
You could call it a validation of a niche marketplace, but I think it’s better described as a validation of a model that’s focuses on the true top line: its users, sellers and buyers. Etsy (by its own admission) may not be perfect, but it always strives to do its best. This latest funding will ensure their vision lives for the long term.
