Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Phil Libin

by 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
