In this 15-minute video, Brad Feld reflects on what he wishes he knew about entrepreneurship and running companies 20 years ago. There is some great advice in this video from a very smart entrepreneur, well-known investor and mentor. Topics include knowing your role in your companies, how to live the "startup life" with purpose and grace and how to hire the right people in fast growing companies by understanding the important relationship between company culture and employee competence.
This video is part of a 5-video series with Brad.

The first payment will be taken when you register and the remaining 3 payments are paid every month for the following 3 months (detailed payment information in the table below).
