I’ve seen plenty of companies go public, but it took Tesla a long time to go public and it took them a lot of capital to do it.
So when it came to Tesla, I’m not sure that anyone else was doing it at that time.
When I was on the Tesla board, we were trying to get to the point where the public market was the way that it should be.
I remember one of the board members was looking at a map and said, “What’s the best way to get there?”
And that’s what we did.
Tesla is a company that, as far as we know, has never been publicly traded, and there was no money to go around at the time.
So we decided to go through all of our investments and see what was the most efficient way to invest.
Tesla was still at a point in time where it was a public company, and we had been thinking about the long term, so we didn’t want to take the risk that the public would not invest in it.
The company had already raised $4 billion from its Series B round of financing.
And then after that, there was this announcement of $50 billion in capital raising from the venture capital world.
The investment community was very excited, but Tesla did not have a lot in the way of cash to put into its business, and it was going to need some capital to grow and to be able to operate.
So, we decided that we had to go in with a lot more capital than we had before.
And we didn’ have a long history of investing in companies, so it was not a very long period of time for us to do this.
And, we ended up being able to go to the next stage in our investing strategy.
We went to a lot, but we didn”t go to a bunch of companies, because we were still in the process of trying to figure out how to invest and to develop this product.
I don”t think there was any point in going to a large company.
The fact that it was still a publicly traded company was the best bet for us.
When we went to the VC community, there were a lot people that said, you know, that was a good idea to go after a publicly-traded company because the VCs wanted to know that you are building something, and if you are going to build something, you should be investing in it for the long-term.
And that was what we wanted to do.
But as you can imagine, the VC world was a very different place than the private equity world, and I don’t think any of the other investors were there yet, and certainly no one that was invested in a publicly listed company.
So there was some pushback from the private industry, and the VC firms were trying very hard to get us to go back to them.
They were really supportive, but they were not very interested in our business model.
They didn”ve seen it as the most attractive way to go about it.
And there were other challenges, like the acquisition costs, and they were also looking at how to scale it.
We had a lot to learn from them.
We weren”t able to build the product that we wanted, and that’s why we were at the stage where we were starting to see our investments decline, and then the valuation fell.
But we went into the last round of funding with a very clear strategy.
The last round we did, we went in with very high expectations, because it was an all-cash investment.
We knew that we would not make any money, and to see that we went out with a high valuation and a high level of capital, that made me feel good.
I was very happy with that investment.
The downside of that investment was that it did not take us to where we needed to go.
We did not realize what we were building when we started.
We started building a brand, we built a business, we created a platform.
But then we were able to realize that our investment had gone through a lot less work than the previous one.
And it was really good to go into that last round knowing that we were making progress on that.
But it also gave us the ability to build an amazing product, and in some ways, that’s something that you have to be very proud of.
