Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Joe Gebbia

by Scott Edward Walker on October 14th, 2011

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 present Joe Gebbia, the Co-Founder of AirBnB.

In this very interesting 20-minute video, Joe discusses the history of AirBnB and how it was created and scaled; it’s an amazing, inspirational story.   You should also check out this extraordinary email exchange between Paul Graham (the Co-Founder of Y Combinator) and uber-VC Fred Wilson with respect to a possible investment in AirBnB.  Many thanks, Scott
