I recently watched a November 2016 interview which Marc Andreessen took part in at Stanford.
The interview features several insights so I encourage you to watch the full piece 55 minute piece. Here are my most important takeaways:
- Entrepreneurs have a bias towards action and frequent decision-making while investors have a bias towards thinking and selective decision-making.
- You need to take into account organizational constraints when attempting to apply theoretical strategy in practice.
- When trying to solve tough problems, it’s useful to think about how someone working in the problem’s domain for whom you have a lot of respect would approach the problem.
You can watch the full interview below.
