Marc Randolph was the co-founder and first CEO of the movie and television streaming service Netflix. Although best known for starting Netflix, Marc’s career as an entrepreneur 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). He is the author of the internationally best-selling memoir, "That Will Never Work – the birth of Netflix and the amazing life of an idea", host of the top-10 "That Will Never Work" podcast, a star of Entrepreneur Magazine’s "Elevator Pitch" web series, and runs the "Neverland" entrepreneurial community on Discord. Most recently, Marc co-founded analytics software company Looker Data and currently serves as an advisor to multiple other startups, serving variously as a mentor, CEO coach, and/or board member.
