It's not every day that you have the privilege of seeing an idea grow into a global enterprise.
But that's the happy situation that I have found myself in over the past few years.
Business Insider recently began an exciting new chapter in its history: We have closed our sale to Europe's leading digital publisher, Axel Springer, and we're working on big plans. Before I focus all my attention to those, though, I want to take a moment to thank some of the many people who have helped us reach this point.
Progress like this is never the product of one person or even a handful of people. Rather, it is the collective creation of everyone who has ever contributed time, money, or effort to an enterprise.
In our case, that's a lot of people. And I am grateful to all of them.
