Formation 8 is now moving faster than a speeding bullet, Hyperloop FAST!

Formation 8 is now moving faster than a speeding bullet, Hyperloop FAST!

If you have been following any major trends you’ll know that Elon Musk is in route to rule the world. Well, that may be an exaggeration, perhaps at least Mars, but on a Earth like note, last year he proposed an idea of a transportation method so futuristic that only someone crazy or super motivated would contemplate it. It turns out someone may be both and that organization goes by the name Formation 8.   So what is this futuristic idea and who is Formation 8? Read on! Formation 8 is an investment firm founded by Joe Lonsdale, Brian Koo and Jim Kim, back in 2011. So far they’ve done a superior job of picking some major money generating enterprises with its first fund. They just so happen to include RelateIQ, which Salesforce bought for $390 million, and Oculus, which Facebook bought for $2 billion last year. When they started they had eight employees at launch, and now close to 30 people wander about the office give or take. Let’s not forget the investments made in companies Wish, Radius, LearnSprout, Leeo, and Yello Mobile. Formation 8 is looking for “industry-transforming companies” no matter what their situation is. So in order to…

The Biggest Name in the Media Industry is the Last Name You’d Expect

They’re one of Apple’s primary partners, appearing at keynotes for new Apple product launches. They are slated to engage in 400,000 hours of streaming live video in 2014, and revenues for the year are estimated at $800 million. By 2016, their revenue projections will hit $1 billion. They’re among the most popular choices for content infrastructure, and one of the biggest media companies in the country. This company isn’t known as a media giant; they’re far more recognizable in other circles, though.   One of the biggest media companies in the industry right now is actually MLB Advanced Media, the tech company of Major League Baseball. How Major League Baseball Became a Media Industry Giant With their innovative approach to media, MLB’s tech division is now considered more of a media company than a baseball organization. MLB Advanced Media began with MLB.com, and was funded through an agreement with the thirty baseball clubs which comprised of $1 million each year over a four-year span. The estimated cost was $120 million, but MLB Advanced Media began turning a profit three years later. After investing less than $75 million, investors started to see ROI, and now those thirty owners are earning annual…

Bark & Co builds out the pooch lover’s market

NYC’s Bark & Co, the dog-lover’s ecommerce tech company, has just netted a cool $15 million in Series B led by Resolute.vc. Ecommerce analysts whose minds are turning to New York’s doggie treat subscription service BarkBox are, so to speak, barking up the right tree: Bark & Co came into being as a result of the astonishing success of “the box”. It seems as though canine lovers are a populous breed: so great has been the success of BarkBox that Bark & Co recently launched a new vet care-on-demand service, BarkCare, as well as a new content portal aptly named “The Bark Post”. Services for doggie lovers The latter attracted 1 million visits in December last year but by June that number had skyrocketed to 10.5 million. It doesn’t take a genius ecommerce analyst to figure out that there’s a big dog-loving market out there, and Bark & Co intend to corner it. In addition to BarkBox, BarkCare and the Bark Post, the company has also just introduced a new mobile app, BarkBuddy, which it describes as “Tinder for dogs.” Users simply swipe left or right to indicate whether or not they love the doggie images posted there. Thereupon, they‘re…
