It seems like anyone with an Internet connection has heard of the most successful online startups since 2004. However, there are bigger questions behind how and why these companies were successful. A helpful tool for answering these questions comes in the form of this infographic put together by the folks at Staff.com.
Some very interesting numbers come up from this infographic. For example, did you know that Facebook is worth more than all the other billion-dollar online startups since 2004 combined? Yet, Facebook only employs less than half of the number of employees by the biggest billion dollar online startup, Groupon? As the newest player on the block, popular photo sharing site Instragram cracks the list despite only starting in 2010. Chances are it’ll be ranked higher in every category the next go around.
