More Words of Wisdom from Marc Andreessen

by Scott Edward Walker on August 6th, 2017

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video clip of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we again present Marc Andreessen, a brilliant entrepreneur and co-founder and general partner of the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.

In this interesting answer to an audience question, Mark raises a very important issue facing startups today: “How do you get engineer number 20?”  The answer is another question:

“What is it about my company that is going to so spectacular, so special, so unusual, and so distinct and differentiated that it is going to be able to easily hire engineer number 20…?”

I hope you enjoy it.  Cheers, Scott
