Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Peter Thiel and Max Levchin

by Scott Edward Walker on September 20th, 2010

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

This week, we present (i) Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal and a brilliant entrepreneur and investor; and (ii) Max Levchin, also a co-founder of PayPal and another brilliant guy.  In this interesting, five-minute clip (courtesy of Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner), Peter and Max briefly discuss PayPal’s exponential growth, how they dealt with their largest competitor and obtaining funding prior to the market collapse.  I hope you enjoy it.  Many thanks, Scott
