Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Larry Page

by Scott Edward Walker on September 20th, 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 Larry Page, co-founder of Google and a brilliant entrepreneur.

In this interesting, three-minute clip from 2002 (courtesy of Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner), Larry shares the following solid nuggets for entrepreneurs:

  • very few companies are founded on technological innovation;
  • most companies are marketing or sales driven, not engineering driven;
  • engineers too often get excited about things that don’t matter; and
  • founders need to focus on what users want.

I hope you enjoy it.  Cheers, Scott
