Saving Google a billion dollars

We all have 20/20 hindsight, right?

Thomas Thurston of Growth Science International did a little "What If?" thought experiment and looked at what would have happened if Google had been funded with a royalty-based finance loan, as opposed to traditional venture capital.

The result was a savings of just under a billion dollars!!

That's the kind of numbers that can make even the most jaded person sit up and take notice.
