Spotlight Trend: Vision fund

"Vision fund" has emerged as a top media narrative for today. CNBC was an early amplifier of this narrative, quickly followed by Bloomberg and Reuters.

"Vision fund" stems from the SoftBank Vision Fund's enormous investment into DoorDash. After DoorDash's meteoric rise in the stock market on Wednesday, Dec. 9th, SoftBank gradually increased their initial investment of nearly $700 million to a massive $11.5 billion. For DoorDash, a company that is already dominating the market amid the pandemic, this is yet another win in the face of a year filled with many market losses for major corporations.

Below is our amplification timeline of this trend.
