Dan Shipper on why Groupon dispersed all the VC money the original employees and investors:

If it doesn’t work out we’re all pretty rich. If it does work out, we’re all really rich. This would keep the entire original team together, the people who understand the business the best, so that in the next year we can shoot for a much higher valuation than the $6 billion offered by Google.

I can see that point too, don’t agree with it.
