Founders at Work

Jessica Livingston

Overview

We've all had that discussion with a group of friends where we kicked around ways to solve a problem. How many times have you said: "This is such a great idea, we should really do it!" Or, "This will make a fortune!"

Some of these brainstorms can grow into companies like Google, Apple, or an Uber. Most business concepts will fail within the first year, which is the most critical time of launching a startup. But what really happens in the early phases of these organizations will surprise anyone on the outside. For the most part, the only ones who've really been there to tell the tale are the founders.

Jessica Livingston, author of the Founders at Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days, gathers a collection of unique interviews from some of these founders of great startup enterprises such as PayPal, TiVo, Yahoo, and TripAdvisor.

Want to be a fly on the wall of these successful companies? Then read on. Let's see how the best of the best make it all happen!

Favorite Quote

"I'd say determination is the single most important quality in a startup founder. If the founders I spoke with were superhuman in any way, it was in their perseverance."
