Commencement of entrepreneurship:
Initialized capital was co-founded in year 2010 and then the journey of investments continued with Zenefits, Instacart, Opendoor, and Cruise. During college days, Ohanian and his friend pitched an idea about MyMobileMenu to Y Combinator. Anyways, the idea was passed by the company but still they encouraged them to come up with a better idea to attain a potential funding. This encouraged them to come up with a better concept and the result was really great which is now well known as Reddit. The basic idea behind developing this platform was to come to the front page of internet, and it worked. Initially the social news channel, Reddit was developed in Common Lisp but later on this platform was redeveloped in Python language to enhance its features and expand its library too.
Growth of Reddit was instantaneous. Initially this news platform was developed for desktops, and then later on the platform was enhanced with mobile apps, allowing folks to access the social news platform on their mobile phones.
