The fastest growing marketplaces of 2020

Andreessen Horowitz announced " The Marketplace 100," a ranking of the largest and fastest-growing consumer-facing marketplace startups and private companies.

They determined the rankings by looking at US credit card data to understand where consumers are actually spending their money.

Here are the key takeaways from the Marketplace 100:
 
  • Four marketplace startups-- Airbnb, Doordash, Instacart, and Postmates--  account for 76% of consumer spending.
  • Travel, food, and groceries are the largest categories.
  • Emerging categories include celebrity shout-out services, streetwear sites, fitness memberships, and even car wash providers.
  • Some marketplaces are growing really fast—3x to 5x year-over-year.

Januari

Di satu Januari, lupakanlah sengketa Separuh nafas jiwaku... sirna Di pagi Januari, yang kita harungi bersama Bahagia selalu dimiliki, bertahun menjalani Naluri berkata di setiap langkah-langkahmu Dua langit tlah membaur di suatu cakrawala Biarlah layar terkembang, menderu ombakmu menabuh pantai Kuingin menyeberang, melintas pulau dan lautan Sebelas Januari bertemu karena kita ini manusia Kau basuh diriku dengan sejuta warna Membiru lautmu memeluk pasir Menanti setiap detik, ku hitung waktunya Tak dapat ku kawal perasaan ini Maafkan salahku saat-saat itu padamu Biar diriku saja menjawab semua cinta Biarkan kujawab semua dusta Menguning bulanmu mengetuk malam Mesra jemarimu belai sukmaku Membias bintangmu menghias hidup Apa dayaku Belahan jiwa yang tertinggal Kala tatap matamu sapa jiwaku Januari lekas berganti Kian hangat dalam ingatan Sampai disini kisah kita Dengarkan... Kian hangat dalam ingatan Hari ini tak harus ku sendiri yang
