Is it Time to Build?: On Marc Andreessen’s Viral Article

Play
Read more

There’s a reason to expect criticism: Paul and Rich dig into the newest article from VC Marc Andreessen. In it, Andreessen exhorts Americans to innovate and blames our lack of preparation for the pandemic on a lack of desire to do so. We reflect on the current state of America and how apparent the holes in our social governance have become since COVID-19 (especially the education system). Is there a world where VC and startups can help us improve these old systems? Has social policy towards more privatization led us towards the wrong things being optimized? We look to other innovations that have come from crises and ask: How can you install that startup-style motivation outside of commercial profit? (Spoiler: Marc Andreessen doesn’t have the answer!)

Starting Greatness with Mike Maples

Podcast Notes Key Takeaways

  • Marc’s advice to those looking to build something great:
    • “The first piece of advice is don’t do it” – Marc Andreessen 
      • Expanded: “If you can be talked out of it [starting a company], you definitely shouldn’t do it. If you listen to the first piece of advice, you definitely shouldn’t do it. If you ignore the first piece of advice, you might have the personality type needed to be a founder.”
  • “Network effects are the best businesses in the world, but to get a network effect going, to get through the bootstrap phase, you need some hack. You need some strategy to get you through the initial phase to the flywheel catching.”Marc Andreessen 
  • Great entrepreneurs live in two realities:
    • They live in the present reality as well as the future (they have a vision for the way things will be, all the while keeping a foot in the present day)
