How to turn failures into billion-dollar companies
Slack wasn’t founded as Slack, also Flickr wasn’t. Everything started with a game to make better connections via the internet and both companies were founded because of failure.
Because Cal Henderson and his Co-Founders couldn’t make the game itself a success they thought about a better idea and business model. They founded Flickr and Slack, one after an other with a few years in between.
In the interview Cal tells us more about the details how Slack and Flickr were founded and also which kind of impact the team had. He talked about establishing a certain culture in the company while scaling up to 1000 employees and also where he sees the emerging markets in the future.
How will AI help to improve Slack?
What will Blockchain do for the world?
Is AR / VR relevant in the next few years?
That are some of the questions that we focus on in the interview. Definitely worth listening!
