Netflixed: Building a Brand and Bringing Down Blockbuster

It isn’t every day you get to pull up a chair and join a fireside chat with two captains of industry. Marc Randolph is a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor, investor and motivational keynote speaker—he also happens to be the co-founder of the online movie and television streaming service Netflix. Though best known for this, his 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 hundreds of early-stage entrepreneurs, and an investor in numerous successful (and an even larger number of unsuccessful) tech ventures.

Listen in on his conversation with Nextiva CEO Tomas Gorny as they discuss how a scrappy Silicon Valley startup brought down Blockbuster and built one of the world's best-known brands.
