Many believe Boston can’t do consumer tech startups. TripAdvisor proves them wrong. TripAdvisor users have written 225M reviews for the service — compare that to Yelp’s community which has only generated 77M reviews. Over 190M people have downloaded one of TripAdvisor’s apps and nearly 50% of their traffic comes from mobile devices. CEO Stephen Kaufer and his 3,000+ employees have built a company that has evolved from “Web 2.0” to “Mobile First” while earning a $12B market cap, right here in Boston.
