Yipit’s Vacanti Offers Perspective on Daily Deal Mania

In a video interview with Business Insider's Henry Blodget, New York based Yipit co-founder Vinicius Vacanti gives his take on the proliferation of "daily deal" sites seeking to replicate the success of Groupon.

Running Yipit, which recommends the best deals from these 100+ sites for its users, has made Vacanti an expert on how this niche has grown and what works within it. He counters Blodget's suggestion that too much VC money may be rushing into the space, asserting that while a few big players have raised a considerable amount of investment, the vast majority of the imitators have not.
