Blue Apron IPO: Will high losses unsettle investors?

Blue Apron is the latest startup to IPO in an attempt to raise capital. Like Snapchat and other major, recent tech IPOs, though, Blue Apron still loses a lot of money, $54.8m in 2016 to be exact. There are good metrics like a ten-fold increase in sales from 2014 to 2016, but I wonder if Wall Street will refuse to fall in with companies like Snap and Blue Apron that continue to lose money.
