Reid Hoffman’s (LinkedIn co-founder) philosophy is based on the principle that entrepreneurialism is a force for good. He is convinced that in the long run, more Silicon Valley-style innovation will lead to greater prosperity and more jobs. Image credit: David Yellen

Reid Hoffman: “Entrepreneurship is throwing yourself off a cliff and assembling an airplane on the way down.”
