Recently, professional networking website LinkedIn went for initial public offer (IPO) and the overwhelming response – which doubled the company’s valuation over night – has only boosted the confidence of other Internet ventures.

Companies are securing more and more funding, revenue is surging with steady pace and growth rate is appreciable but fails to create ‘WoW’ effect on revenue books.
