Title: Entrepreneurship Takes Flight
Speaker: William Marshall (Planet Labs)
Take an agile approach to software development.
Finding the right investors is really key.
Do something meaningful to help the world.
Don’t do an MBA.
The best business people didn’t study business. They were entrepreneurs in some other technical discipline and then they applied themselves (to business).
You need a great idea and that is not related to business skills.
If you have an idea where is the best and optimal place to affect that problem?
Hire people smarter than yourself.
Do something you love.
It is good to wait until you have done something before announcing it.
Only talk to the people making decisions.
You’ve got to be adaptable.
We are already on a spacecraft–it is called the earth.
