Storyline

The recent "new" economy with its unprecedented highs and frantic reversals of fortune is rife with fascinating true stories. e-Dreams turns it's focus to the recently defunct Kozmo.com. Once upon a time, a story like this would have been unbelievable, even among those intimate with the workings of Wall Street. But Kozmo.com is now a case study of how an entire economic sector went awry. Just three years ago, Kozmo.com was just an idea in the minds of two 20-something Korean American investment bankers: an online convenience store that made deliveries of snacks, videotapes and other products within a half hour. Beginning in an unfurnished warehouse, co-founders Joseph Park and Yong Kang and their small group of employees did everything from build the website to making deliveries on bicycle. Over the following year their business grew from 10 employees to 3,000 and extended to 11 cities. Like so many other dot-coms, Kozmo.com's growth was something hitherto unseen: It raised more than ... Written by Seattle International Film Festival Guide

The Market Prevails!
18 August 2005 | by EdwinRywaltSee all my reviews

After viewing this documentary, I did some additional research on this company, Kozmo.com and discovered just how ridiculous the dot.com business model (if you can call it that) was. The DVD that I viewed had some additional information on the founders of this company. After the company failed, the CEO, Park, is reported to have gone off to the Harvard Business School. Incredible, but not surprising. I thought the documentary was terrific in that it perspicuously presented the 'scam' that was perpetrated by this company by going after funding instead of profitable and meaningful business. Kudos for producers and directors Wonsuk Chin and Sam Pai.
