Some folks are now saying Square's growth is starting to plateau (the IPO has been put on hold). However, no one can deny however that Jack Dorsey has done something amazing in re-imagining the Point of Sale device (POS) since he founded the firm in 2009. Square is currently valued at around $5BN and has 600+ employees. Here is a short post that lays out the growth story.
Dorsey created a list titled, “140 Reasons Why Square Will Fail”, which he distributed to potential investors of Square. The list included counterpoints to each objection, which informed investors that he was prepared for any possible obstacle the new startup may face. “140 Reasons Why Square Will Fail” also served as a clever strategy to acquire new interest.
