    Rakuten Leads Investment in Pinterest
    Big news all! Rakuten has invested $100 M in Pinterest:

    Hiroshi Mikitani, CEO of Rakuten said: "While some may see e-commerce as a straightforward vending machine-like experience, we believe it is a living process where both retailers and consumers can communicate, discover, and curate to make the experience more entertaining. We see tremendous synergies between Pinterest's vision and Rakuten's model for e-commerce. Rakuten looks forward to introducing Pinterest to the Japanese market as well as other markets around the world."

    No, apparently the deal values Pinterest at around 1 billion, so I imagine they have bought about 10% of the company.
