Words of Wisdom from Reid Hoffman

by Scott Edward Walker on September 28th, 2016


To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we post a brief video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we present Reid Hoffman, co-founder and Executive Chairman of LinkedIn, a partner at Greylock Partners, and a brilliant entrepreneur and investor.

In this interesting clip (via Silicon Valley Forum), Reid shares the following three solid tips to founders:

  • “Entrepreneurship is a team sport more than it is an individual sport.” (at 0:30)
  • “Get as much ‘intelligence’ about your project as possible.” (at 1:16)
  • “Be measuring the confidence…in your investment thesis.” (at 1:56)

I hope you enjoy it. Cheers, Scott
