In Detail

At Netflix, Marc served as their founding CEO, as the executive producer of their web site and as a member of their board of directors until his retirement in 2004. 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 hundreds of early-stage entrepreneurs, and an investor in numerous successful (and an even larger number of unsuccessful) tech ventures. Most recently, Marc co-founded analytics software company Looker Data Sciences, which was acquired by Google in 2019.


Marc's general themes are strongly entrepreneurial but his message resonates just as well with corporate CEOs as it does with students and early stage entrepreneurs. His experience as a six-time founder allows him to speak with authority not only about how companies get started, but about how businesses of any size can better foster innovation and more effectively turn ideas into realities.
