Why Didn’t I Think of That? Podcast – Episode #1: Groupon

‘Groupon Occupies Wall Street’ – November 9, 2011


 

What they do:
A coupon business that brings groups of people together.

Inspiration:
When Andrew Mason developed a website that bring together groups of people for causes and fundraising, he quickly saw the potential of group power. One year later, he launched Groupon — a Group Coupon Business.

About the business:
Groupon.com serves major city populations with daily bargains at unbeatable prices. If enough people sign up for a deal, discounts can range from 40 – 90%. Businesses win by getting traffic for goods or services, consumers get huge discounts, and Groupon gets a percentage of the sales. Now that they’ve gone public, Groupon is worth nearly $20 billion, just four years after launching.
