Words of Wisdom from Zach Perret

by Scott Edward Walker on June 28th, 2021

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.” Every few weeks, we share a favorite video of a successful founder, investor or business leader on a variety of topics. This week, we present Zach Perret, the co-founder and CEO of Plaid.

In a solid Clubhouse conversation from a couple of weeks ago (which was uploaded to the a16z Live podcast), Zach shares some words of wisdom for founders (@16:21):

“[My] only advice … is don’t die as a startup. I think that is the most important lesson that I learned, which is: Don’t give up – keep fighting. Somehow if you fight long enough, good things happen.”

Zach also shares a great story regarding Plaid’s seed round @14:22.  I hope you enjoy it.  Cheers, Scott
