Make businesses you will be proud of in 100 years
Most people would tell you not to take lessons from high school drop outs. How about high school drop outs who have just raised $22m in VC funding? Tobias is CEO and founder of Shopify – ‘the easiest way to create beautiful and scalable online stores’.
If you have a great product and time it well, you can reach success. DODOcase is a fantastic example of just this – unique and beautiful iPad cases made by LA’s otherwise out-of-work book binders. In their first year they created 40 new jobs and had a revenue of $4m.
If you really want to be proud of your business in 100 years, run it so that you primarily delight your customers – money will follow.
