    All foam and no beer.

    They haven't made a profit since day one.

    That's how disrupters and pirates work- ruining lives and careers, selling off the bits to their pirate buddies, hiding behind a fake altruistic 'social mission'.

    Not fooled,

    Not hard when venture capital money buys this:


    "This new unit, a very serviceable two-bedroom, two-bath with parquet floors, big South-facing windows, a sunroom and a tiny kitchen (who cares when you’re planning a combo? Besides, as the Blumenthals once confessed, “we specialize in eating out and delivery”) was listed for $2.6 million with Halstead’s Laurie Silverman. But it appears that the Blumenthals were very keen on picking it up from neighbor Mitsuko Furukawa, given that they paid $2.8 million, a sizeable chunk over ask. (You could buy 2,105 pairs of Warby Parker glasses with the $200,000 overage!).


    Incidentally, when the couple first bought in the building, they also paid $200,000 more than ask, bringing their total investment to $6.3 million (and we’d guess, will be spending quite a bit more with the renovation costs of combining two units). But in the end, they’ll be able to enjoy a five-bedroom spread, the likes of which are somewhat rare in the quaint co-op world of the Village."

    Revenue\Gross Sales = Money coming in.

    Operating Costs\Expenses = Money going out

    Income\Net Income = Revenue - Expenses

    If Revenue > Expenses then that = + Income, with + Income = Profit

    If Revenue < Expenses then that = - Income, with - Income = Loss

    That's the essentials of it.

    So, one can have a billion dollars in Revenue, but if Expenses are 1.2 billion, then that leads to an Income of -200 million, so that would be a Loss.
