Randy Komisar on Failure
Failure seems to be the topic of today. Came across this gem of an interview with KPCB partner Randy Komisar. Before you poopoo Randy’s advice because he’s a VC, know that he’s got quite the track record as an entrepreneur (including some impressive failures, most notably GO which is chronicled in Startup).
Anyway, there is a great quote toward the end of this interview where Randy says, “You can learn from someone else’s failure, but the only way to really get your money’s worth is to fail yourself.”
Randy is an excellent speaker. The full interview is less than 10 minutes and is worth a view for entrepreneurs and investors alike (note this interview was done in 2004).
