Why Marc Randolph?

Marc Randolph is a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor and investor perhaps best known as the co-founder of Netflix. His message is a blend of inspiration (overcoming adversity / anyone can do it / etc.), stories drawn from the starting and growing of Netflix, plus dozens of concrete suggestions taken from his 4 decades as an entrepreneur on how people can bring innovation back to THEIR companies.


Marc’s Keynote Speaker Bio:

Marc Randolph is a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor, investor and motivational keynote speaker.  Marc was co-founder of the online movie and television streaming service Netflix, serving as their founding CEO, as the executive producer of their website, and as a member of their board of directors until his retirement in 2004.

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 hundreds of early-stage entrepreneurs, and an investor in numerous successful (and an even larger number of unsuccessful) tech ventures.

Most recently, Randolph co-founded an analytics software company Looker Data Sciences, and currently serves as an advisor to numerous other startups, serving variously as a mentor, CEO coach, and/or board member.

He is a frequent speaker at industry events, works extensively with young entrepreneur programs, and is a trustee of the non-profit National Outdoor Leadership School.

Marc Randolph is charming, handsome and modest; and whenever possible avoids referring to himself in the third person.  He lives in Santa Cruz, California.

Testimonials 12

  • ​“Our firm hired Marc to be a keynote speaker at Accenture’s very important event in Spain. His story was very engaging and we all enjoyed his discussion about disruption, innovation and the Netflix story.”

    Beatriz Oriol

    CEO at RPA Marketing

  • “While Marc Randolph is certainly a successful entrepreneur and co-founder of Netflix, his most significant role may be that of mentor. I’ve seen it first hand on the campus of High Point University where Marc serves as Entrepreneur in Residence. Our students listen intensely to his advice and counsel, and they line up to receive feedback on their entrepreneurial endeavors and in general, their life path.  In Nobody Knows Anything, Marc puts to paper a lifetime of learnings, trial and error, and a system to ensure the reader can embrace the type of growth mindset that creates success and significance.”

    Dr. Nido R. Qubein

    High Point University President

  • “Marc is a great storyteller with lessons that can be applied to all business; from startups to legacy brands. He is logical, down-to-earth and entertaining. His personal stories demonstrate a unique perspective on transforming mindsets on behalf of companies and brands in an ever-evolving digital age.”

    Keith Farley

    Director of Customer Experience, Aflac

  • “Marc Randolph leverages his decades of experience in Silicon Valley to encourage everyone, anyone and nobody to follow their dreams.  Adopting his strategies to reduce time to insight, embrace risk, and simply take action, the reader will start to think like a start-up, develop as a leader and innovate.”

    Rebecca Nerad

    Head of Global Marketing and Alliances, Bristle

  • “Marc Randolph spoke at many CIOsynergy conferences through North America and he was an outstanding speaker. His thought provoking keynotes have underlined Marc as one of our most demanded keynotes. His new book about Netflix will surely be a must read and we’re looking forward to reading it and sharing it with our community of enterprise leaders.  We need more inspiring books about how entrepreneurs take a dream and make it reality for our C-suite audiences who are themselves on the edge of inspiring innovation”

    Nepal Patel

    CEO and Founder of CIOSynergy

  • “Everything turned out great for our program! Marc was amazing and we’ve heard nothing but positive feedback on his session.”

    Kaitlin Coyne

    Premier Events Marketing, Price Waterhouse Coopers

  • “Marc Randolph spoke at our PSC annual conference and he was without doubt our best conference speaker ever.  In a strangely ironic way,  Marc’s view that ‘nobody really knows anything’ provides hope and inspiration that you don’t need superhuman powers or some incredible insight to succeed. Better still all the so called experts that are supposed to know, well they don’t really know either! His new book about Netflix will be a great read and we’re are looking forward being among the first customers.  Marc and his team changed the lives of every TV viewer in the world, you can’t afford not to read this book.”

    Paul Dwyer

    Managing Director, PSC Insurance

  • “Marc was outstanding. His content and delivery were inspiring. Having him as a speaker added value not only to our conference; the way he challenged us to think differently will continue to influence the audience’s mindset.”

    Rebecca Nerad

    Head of Marketing and Customer Success

  • “There isn’t anyone Marc can’t inspire. Entrepreneurs or not, his inspirational story really humanizes taking risks and going after what you want, even if it isn’t easy. He’s funny, relatable, and leaves the audience with actionable steps to be successful.”

    Jess

    CEO, Headbands of Hope

  • The CIO’s truly enjoyed your keynote and takeaways

    CIOsynergy

  • Inbev loved your talk!

    Bull White House

  • Having Marc Randolph as a speaker at eMerge Americas 2016 elevated the overall level of our content and provided our thousands of attendees with a unique view into the mind of an entrepreneur that has changed the face of entertainment. As a successful and serial entrepreneur, Marc was able to shine a light on how innovation has the ability to completely change industries.

Coaching, Advisor and Investor

After six startups, I’m done starting my own companies.  Now my only objective is to help others be successful; helping early stage founders grow their business, helping them establish strong working relationship with their employees and co-founders, and helping the figure out how to maintain balance in their lives while doing so. Although I like advising, I hate advisory boards.  I find that they encourage shoot-from-the-hip pattern recognition type stuff that ends up being unrewarding for both founders and advisors alike.  To be genuinely helpful requires an extensive investment of time.  Time to know the founding team well; to understand their product, their competitors, and their market; to know their strengths and weaknesses.  Only then can you properly give advice that makes sense. Because the time investment is so high in this sort of relationship – and because I’m still working very hard to maintain balance in my own life – I can only work with a handful of companies at a time.  I’m currently working with 7 great organizations, but I’m always looking to meet new ones.
