The fate of Binary Capital is now in the hands of its limited partners.

Founder: Days before scandal broke, Binary's Justin Caldbeck "tried to use funding to shut me up"


What a difference a day makes. When Binary Capital’s Justin Caldbeck was first exposed as a serial predator by The Information, he issued a statement that was, frankly, breathtaking: “I strongly deny The Information’s attacks on my character.

This is my last story about Travis Kalanick

This is my last story about Uber CEO Travis Kalanick. If you are a long time Pando reader-- since, say, 2012-- you know why that is a momentous statement for everyone here who has struggled to keep going emotionally and financially amid years of Travis Kalanick and his henchbro Emil Michael trying to destroy my family, my professional reputation, and of course Pando’s business.

Five years on: Telling the uncensored story of NSFWCORP, in real time

Las Vegas, September 18th 2011. Early that morning I took a cab to a strip mall TV studio somewhere behind the Mirage hotel.

Amazon-Whole Foods might not live happily ever after

Once upon a time, the bears used to talk about how Amazon the e-retailer was just another retailer in dot-com clothing.

Deregulating ourselves to death

I don’t know how you do it. How you stay on social media; how you can even bear to check your phone. I have enough trouble just turning on the television or picking up a newspaper, trying to imagine what today’s fresh tragedy will be.

It's OK if Aibnb doesn't "win" China

There’s a lot of concern about Airbnb not winning China in my feeds and in my inbox today. This stems from a Bloomberg story today that points out how small Airbnb is still in China, and that it plans to double spending in China next year to compete.

Cash flows before bros: Inside Bill Gurley’s pivot from Uber apologist to board dissenter

At Uber’s all hands meeting yesterday, the company was repeatedly saying one thing, at the same time they were doing another, whether it was “thanking” Susan Fowler, a person they haven’t actually thanked, or saying they would have zero tolerance for sexism, in a meeting where a board member made a sexist joke.

There's a lot wrong with Bloomberg’s “research” showing female VCs don’t support female entrepreneurs

A good rule of thumb when you do research that shows a dramatically different outcome than previous studies is to ask yourself if there is something in your methodology that could have caused that.

Elon Musk's funny not funny shareholder meeting

Is this the age of Tesla, or just a Tesla moment? That question bedeviled investors five years ago, when Tesla was trading around $30 a share and analysts worried about its risk-reward profile.

Monsters

As regular Pando readers will know, I recently removed myself from the Silicon Valley swamp. And, you know what?

Chad Dickerson: “There’s something about losing that makes you better.”

Here’s something you don’t hear in today’s unicorn “crushing it!” era of startups: “There’s something about losing that makes you better.” That was Chad Dickerson, Etsy CEO in 2013, when I interviewed him about how he wound his way to the company.
