Bursting The Dot Com Bubble
The dot-com bubble was a rapid rise in U.S. technology stock equity valuations fueled by investments in Internet-based companies during the bull market in the late 1990s. The bubble burst in 2001, resulting in a loss of billions of dollars and causing several Internet companies to go bust. The collapse of Silicon Valley during the dot-com bubble was a significant event in the tech industry and world economy, impacting many people and businesses. The dot-com bubble was a painful but valuable learning experience for Silicon Valley and the tech industry, forcing companies to rethink their business models, focus on profitability, and prioritise long-term sustainability over short-term growth. The experience also highlighted the importance of diligence, rigorous analysis, and disciplined decision-making in the tech industry.
