That Will Never Work: The Birth of Netflix and The Amazing Life of an Idea

Marc was co-founder of Netflix serving as their founding CEO, as the executive producer of their website, and as a member of their board of directors. Packed with dozens of stories that trace the dramatic ups and downs of those first exciting years, Marc weaves an inspiring story in his keynote that shows the value of innovation, persistence, and optimism. Along the way he shares some of the many values that he believe made Netflix successful, including a focus on analytics and testing, its novel corporate culture, and it’s almost fanatical obsession with focus. Beyond Netflix, Marc has founded or co-founded more than half a dozen other successful start-ups, mentored rising entrepreneurs, and invested in numerous successful tech ventures.
