Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Reid Hoffman

by Scott Edward Walker on July 12th, 2010

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series entitled “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we post a short video presentation or interview of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics to help entrepreneurs succeed.

This week, we present Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, a partner at Greylock and a brilliant entrepreneur  (courtesy of Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner).  In this interesting, six-minute excerpt (from February 2007), Reid discusses certain fundamental principles of entrepreneurship, including the importance of (i) measuring your failing points as early as possible, (ii) time cycles (and luck), and (iii) taking controlled risk.

I hope you enjoy it.  Thanks, Scott
