LinkedIn's IPO filing: the interesting bits - Internet Business :: Real Business - The Champion of UK Enterprise:
I love LinkedIn, Not Reid.. but most importantly the motto below.. and part of the reason why back in 2004, when I was looking around to have our exclusive MBA alumni group to be hosted, I chose LinkedIn, and were a few of the first to try out the beta group function.
so glad that decision was correct. and now also written down on the IPO document.. hope that the future management will stay true to that!!
"LinkedIn takes its motto 'our members come first' seriously. The company admits that it has lost out on commercial opportunities as it didn't think they were in the users' best interests: 'In the past, we have forgone, and may in the future forgo, certain expansion or short-term revenue opportunities that we do not believe are in the best interests of our members, even if our decision negatively impacts our operating results in the short term.'"
