Alidaba: The Biggest Company You've Never Heard Of

Hosted by

There’s a tech company that did more business last year than Amazon and eBay combined. You’ve probably never heard of it, but chances are you will soon. Alibaba, China’s biggest e-commerce company, is about to go public in the United States, and it could be the biggest tech IPO of the year. It could even generate more than the $16 billion that Facebook raised from investors when it went public in 2012.
