Spiegel was only 23yo, writing crazy insightful notes on markets and valuation: ImageImageImageImage
Some backstory on Spiegel turning down Zuck’s $3B+ offer ( $SNAP is a $94B company today): ImageImage

In 1958, Warren Buffett spent $31,500 to buy a modest home (where he still lives).

If he slept in the street and put all that money into Berkshire Hathaway — when he fully took it over in 1964 — it would now be worth $882,000,000.

Lesson: Don’t buy real estate.
Could someone good at math tell me what a 2,810,526% gain on $31,500 actually is?

1/ Brex raised new funding at a $7.4B valuation.

Interestingly, the corporate card startup launched in 2018 with a very successful $300k out-of-home (OOH) ad campaign.

Here's a breakdown of Brex's OOH strategy 🧵
2/ First, what are out-of-home (OOH) ads?

There are 4 major categories:

◻️ Street furniture (bus benches, phone kiosks)
◻️transit (taxis, busses, airports)
◻️place-based (arenas, shopping malls)
◻️billboards (traditional and digital)

Billboards make up 60%+ of OOH inventory.
3/ What's interesting about OOH is that if used correctly, the cost to reach 1k people (aka CPM) is cheaper than other ad options.
