Marc Randolph - CEO and Founder of Netflix
Marc Randolph is a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, who in 1996 founded the online movie and television streaming service Netflix. Marc was their founding CEO, and during his 8 years with the company he played a central role in their transformation from a tiny 10-person DVD-by-mail company into a worldwide enterprise with more than 50 million subscribers. Although best known for starting Netflix, Marc’s career as an entrepreneur actually spans more than four decades. He’s been a founder of more than half a dozen other successful start-ups, a mentor to scores of early stage entrepreneurs, and an investor in numerous successful tech ventures (and an even larger number of unsuccessful ones). Most recently, Marc co-founded analytics software company Looker Data Sciences, and currently serves as an advisor to five other startups, serving variously as their mentor, CEO coach, and board member.
