Make everyone a hero: The Reid Hoffman story (Part 2)

reid_hoffman

We’re back with season four — and part two of our turning the tables episode with Reid Hoffman. (If you missed part one, go listen now!) In this episode, we follow Reid through PayPal, LinkedIn (and Microsoft’s acquisition), and Greylock, and catch up him as host of Masters of Scale — all the while proving our theory that you can chart an epic journey to scale if you make everyone a heron along the way. Hosted by June Cohen, executive producer of Masters of Scale and CEO of WaitWhat.

“Masters of Scale helps people work together in this mission to build great new companies of the future.”

— Reid Hoffman
