Investors Should Prepare for BuzzFeed IPO in 2017

Buz Investors BuzzFeed IPO CEO Jonah Peretti must laugh when he hears talk of

Buz Investors BuzzFeed IPO CEO Jonah Peretti must laugh when he hears talk of "fake news" and "failing media institutions." Last year, the 43 year-old mogul raised another $200.0 million from NBCUniversal Media, LLC, leading to a BuzzFeed valuation of $1.5 billion. There are even rumors of an BuzzFeed initial public offering (IPO) in 2017, so perhaps the word "failing" doesn't quite apply to this company.

For those who may not be familiar with BuzzFeed, it is the biggest news and entertainment company to emerge in the InterIt gets six billion views per month. This windfall of traffic is usually drawn from an odd mix of viral videos, list posts (e.g. "The 10 Best Moments from the Oscars"), and snappy cultural analysis.net era

BuzzFeed IPO

If there's one thing you should know about startups, it's that they like to raise more money in each funding round. The whole point is to push BuzzFeed stock higher and higher, or put another way, to make BuzzFeed's valuation bigger and bigger.

Think about it like this: a fast growing company-let's call it "Startup X"-raises $10.0 million in January. It wants more than that in April, and investors are happy to oblige. Startup X raises $20.0 billion in April, double what it got three months before. Expansion continues.

This isn't just my opinion; all the smart money is betting on BuzzFeed stock. Hotshot investors like Marc Andreessen believe it can conquer old media and massive corporations like NBCUniversal think it is a force to be reckoned with. Only retail investors are left behind.
