Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Phil Libinby Scott Edward Walker on May 3rd, 2012
To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.” Each week, we share a favorite video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics. This week, we again present Phil Libin, co-founder and CEO of Evernote, and a bright and engaging entrepreneur.
In this interesting keynote address at the recent TNW conference, Phil discusses, among other things:
- the wrong reasons to start a company – i.e., (i) money, (ii) power, (iii) boredom and (iv) flex time;
- the only “legitimate” reason to start a company – i.e., to change the world;
- the definition of “entrepreneurship”; and
- the five factors that make this the best time in history to start a company.
I hope you enjoy it. Many thanks, Scott
