100 Years of Awesomeness
Imagine building a company that lives through booms, bubbles and busts; a company that keeps innovating and creating value; a company that’s around in 100 years. It’s not as crazy as you think, but it requires a radical shift in start-up and investment culture. Far from the quick exit, it's all about believing in your vision and focusing on your users. If you do, then your company will last well into the future. In this presentation, Phil Libin will share how Evernote is winning over lifetime trust in a service, while simultaneously building what hopes to be a century old company.
Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, is an entrepreneur and executive who has led two Internet companies from the very beginning to proven commercial success, and helped three others through rapid growth. Prior to joining Evernote, Phil founded and served as president of CoreStreet, currently one of the top companies providing smart credential and identity management technologies to governments and large corporations throughout the world. Previously, Phil was founder and CEO of Engine 5, a leading Boston-based Internet software development company acquired by Vignette Corporation in early 2000, where he went on to serve as principal architect and chief technologist for applications. Phil has a degree in Computer Science from Boston University.
