Marc Randolph was the co-founder and first CEO of the online movie and television streaming service Netflix.
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 scores of early stage entrepreneurs, and an investor in numerous successful tech ventures (and an even larger number of unsuccessful ones).
He is the author of the internationally best-selling memoir, That Will Never Work – the birth of Netflix and the amazing life of an idea, host of the top-10 That Will Never Work podcast, and a star of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Elevator Pitch web series.
Most recently, Marc co-founded analytics software company Looker Data and currently serves as an advisor to multiple other startups, serving variously as a mentor, CEO coach, and/or board member.
Marc is charming, handsome and modest; and whenever possible avoids referring to himself in the third person. He lives in Santa Cruz, California.
