About Marc Randolph

Marc Randolph is is the co-founder and first CEO of Netflix. He is an American tech entrepreneur, advisor, speaker and environmental advocate.

Marc’s career as an entrepreneur spans four decades. He’s founded or co-founded six other successful startups, mentored hundreds of early-stage entrepreneurs, and as an investor has helped seed dozens of successful tech ventures (and just as many unsuccessful ones). Most recently, he co-founded analytics software company Looker Data Sciences, where he now serves as director.

His book ‘That Will NEVER Work’  is now a national bestseller. It is the real-life, totally improbable story of Netflix’s early days, told in his unconventional, engaging, inspiring style. It is not only the ultimate follow-your-dreams parable, but also one of the most dramatic and insightful entrepreneurial stories of our time.
