Investors have faith in online source- code.
GitHub have been valued at $2bn after receiving a $250m venture capital.
It is worth than ZenDesk , Yelp and only marginally less than the New York Times.
The site has raised to high popularity and money fast as it was only founded in 2008. The site already has over 10 million users and triples that in monthly visits to the site.
Although reported to be worth $2bn GitHub have neither denied nor confirmed that valuation.
Although a reasonably quick rise to wealth for GitHub it wasn’t necessarily an easy one. They were accused of being gender bias and a female engineer was claiming she was sacked unfairly after persistent harassment from fellow employees. They’ve faced legal complaints about policies and protecting controversial products.
