Here’s some quotes from the episode:
What I had to learn the hard way, was that the process by which you build a company, matters just as much as the team, just as much as the idea, just as much as the product.
I believe that the thing that a startup exists to do, is to learn what its business is going to be. So learning is the unit of progress, not the making of stuff.
We’re living in a global, entrepreneurial renaissance, I think it is the best time to be an entrepreneur in history.
Certainly here in Silicon Valley, where in amidst of a bit of a funding boom or bubble, depending on your point of view. And so fund-raising has become absurdly easy for startups as it has in past booms..
We are not equipped as a society yet, to understand what does it mean to have an economy where GDP growth and job growth are dependent on our qualities of imagination.
