For anyone at #Coupang - SoftBank’s Vision Fund just invested an additional $2 billion to further growth, therefore validating the strategy of Coupang is working and putting Coupang’s valuation up to $9 billion. Was the new 409a price shared internally? Was the investment considered a liquidity event where you were able to sell NSOs for income?

    It may also mean coupang is bleeding money and SoftBank has to keep it afloat to protect its investment.

      And Uber way. Legit companies won't need so much investment if they're not burning money.

    SoftBank is crap. Always inflates valuation. Those companies will suffer

      How would they suffer? They already have their money

      That was sarcasm, sorry. It was in reply to the individual who said startups with SoftBank investments suffer.
