Re: I bet that the board didn't miss out.
Start ups may not be glamorous but they can be extremely profitable when they fail. A case of I know personally the CEO, CFO, and family members put none of their own money in and made hundreds of thousands clear cash from a business that failed in less than 2 years. Employees and contractors where not so lucky but to avoid paying them the company went out of business.
What is the purpose of business if not to benefit the country, the workers, society? Is it really just to feed off a nation and it's resources for the benefit of the few?
