- Yelp CEO Jeremy Stoppelman has had it with Google. In an interview with Re / code saying that the tech giant 'crazy was made 'and that Google has forgotten that it is all about the user is supposed to run. 'They are now mainly concerned to strengthen their monopoly,' growls Stoppelman.
Yelp, a service that companies can be evaluated for use in mapping software, has been in existence for almost twelve years and has built a considerable reputation in those ten years. Apple uses Yelp information for example in Apple Maps and Siri. Who wants to know if a restaurant is good at Yelp can find reviews by visitors.

What annoys him is that Yelp has considerable competition from startups to accumulate seed capital out huge sums without setting up a long career in front. Yelp has been quoted and makes the fight against startups without major obligations under Stoppelman so difficult. However, he claims change. The days when startups with just baking a beautiful story binnenharkten with money, but according to him passed.
