It’s been 15 years since Reid Hoffman co-founded LinkedIn, which was acquired by Microsoft last year to the tune of $26 billion.
Hoffman now sits on Microsoft’s board and is counted among today’s leading minds in the tech and startup scene. But he’s still an entrepreneur at heart.
Hoffman shared his many secrets to startup success at a recent Tech Alliance luncheon in downtown Seattle, which we’re sharing on this special episode of the GeekWire podcast.
GeekWire co-founders John Cook and Todd Bishop share their thoughts on the show, before playing Hoffman’s full talk with tech investor Sarah Imbach on entrepreneurship, Seattle’s tech scene and, of course, the world’s most entrepreneurial board game: Settlers of Catan.
