Gritty Entrepreneur Stories - From Startup to International Domination
Two Videos I Enjoyed This Week ...
If you want to see two great stories about gritty entrepreneurs going from startup to international domination, I recommend these.
Netflix vs. The World chronicles the journey of Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph as they conceived of new ways to deliver video content to the world. In the process, they grow a media company more valuable than most of the traditional studios combined. I love the story of the two of them carpooling to work when the idea about sending a DVD through the mail came up. Turning the car around, they bought a DVD and an envelope to immediately test their idea. They didn't overanalyze it, they literally "shipped it". This movie demonstrates the amazing capability of the founders to fearlessly try things and see what works. Watch on Amazon - (1h 44 min)
In Disrupting Wine, we see the story of Heini Zachariassen, the founder and CEO of Vivino, which provides users with any wine's rating, review and average price. When Heini encountered a problem - not knowing anything about which wine to buy - he conceived of an app that would help. Now, Vivino boasts 42 million users and is the world's largest wine community. This is the story of how Heini moved his company and his family from Copenhagen Denmark to the Bay Area to make his dream come true. This one gets into the details of the impact on his family... What do you think? Cautionary tale or model of the maniacal focus required to disrupt an industry? Watch on Amazon - (47 min)
