Pinterest Has An Invitation To The Billion Dollar Startup Club, But Will It Accept?
You know who the busiest man in the startup world is right now? Pinterest's newly-minted CEO Ben Silbermann, who from what we're hearing is so preoccupied with shipping product that he hasn't been taking any investors' calls. And there are a lot of freakin' calls (Fact: Silbermann's voice mailbox is full). EVERYONE wants Pinterest to raise a C-round, and is trying every which way they can to get a precious slice of time with the modest Silbermann, who hasn't taken a formal meeting with anybody yet according to a source, compounding the whole supply vs. demand problem.
