About the Jeremy Stoppelman Interview

Nine years ago I co-founded Yelp, a website that helps you cure the munchies at 3am -- and find all kinds of local businesses. Ask me anything about me, the origins of our website, the PayPal Mafia, my vizsla Darwin, what it’s like to build a company and take it public, why I don’t have a corner office, or my opinion on refined sugar (hint: don’t love it).

Edit: Thanks, Reddit. I've got to go feed Darwin, but this has been fun!
