Reid Hoffman Fireside with Josh Elman | #ProductSF

Partner at Greylock and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman offers a candid perspective on lessons learned from getting LinkedIn going and then scaling it beyond. He explains why he had conviction for social networks in the early 2000s and gives the scoop on his first (not as successful) startup Socialnet. He explains how he and his team navigated their financing strategy, and what he did to build his relationship with Jeff Weiner before bringing him on as the LinkedIn CEO.

#ProductSF is a product-centric event hosted by Greylock Partners. The conference brings together a community of founders, PMs, and product leaders to talk about the challenges of building new, innovative products that change lives and create habits.
