Foursquare in Five Years

What’s the future look like for Foursquare? Founder Dennis Crowley isn’t quite sure, though he’s confident the company will grow far beyond where it is today.

“We’re not raising money, though people have approached us,” Crowley said at our D: Dive Into Mobile conference. “We have enough money to go through till the end of next year. The point is not to become profitable now, but to grow.”

Where will Foursquare be five years from now? Is there an IPO or acquisition in its future? Said Crowley, “I have a solid idea of what the product will look like after two years. No idea if we’ll be sold or independent in five years. The most frustrating experience for me was having a lot of things we wanted to build with Dodgeball and not being able to do them. Now we’re actually getting them done.”

We need to ask how do we regulate the Internet? You can’t have a market without property rights. The idea that you’ll have no enforcement should be greeted with laughter. I’m not seeing any alternative come out.
