And don't miss Tim Culpan on SoftBank's deal jiu-jitsu: "As the largest backer of e-commerce startup Snapdeal, Son's SoftBank Group Corp. had been trying to engineer a merger with Flipkart Group so the combined entity could better take on Inc. Like petulant children refusing to eat their greens, Snap's co-founders scuttled that deal despite it being best for the company's health.

'No worries,' thinks Son. 'I'll invest in Flipkart instead.'"
