Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Reid Hoffman

by Scott Edward Walker on September 25th, 2011

To Our Clients & Friends:  Welcome to our weekly series “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.

This week, we again present Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, a partner at Greylock and a brilliant entrepreneur  (courtesy of The Wall Street Journal).  In this interesting clip, Reid provides five solid tips for startups:

  • focus on “network intelligence”
  • understand doing “flexible persistence”
  • always aim big
  • pay attention to the “real dynamics of competition”
  • define your unique strategy

I hope you enjoy it.  Thanks, Scott
