What can you learn from a Silicon Valley legend and a pantheon of iconic leaders? The key to scaling a successful business isn’t talent, network, or strategy. It’s an entrepreneurial mindset—a mindset that can be cultivated.

Behind the scenes in Silicon Valley, Reid Hoffman (founder of LinkedIn, investor at Greylock) is a sought-after advisor to heads of companies and heads of state. On his podcast Masters of Scale, he sits down with an all-star list of visionary founders and leaders to discuss the surprising strategies that have powered the most extraordinary successes of our times.

Here, Hoffman teams up with Masters of Scale’s executive producers to offer a rare window into the entrepreneurial mind. They share riveting stories and revealing insights from leaders of the world’s most iconic companies - including Apple, Nike, Netflix, Spotify, Google, Instagram, and Microsoft - as well as the bold, disruptive startups—like 23andMe, TaskRabbit, the Black List and Walker&Co—solving the problems of the twenty-first century.

Through vivid storytelling and straightforward analysis, Masters of Scale distills their collective insights —as well as his own experience as a founder and investor—into a set of counterintuitive principles that anyone can use. How do you find a winning idea and turn it into a scalable venture? What can you learn from a “squirmy no”? When should you stop listening to your customers? Which fires should you put out right away, and which should you let burn? And can you really make money while making the world a better place? (Answer: Yes.)

Based on more than 100 interviews, and with material never aired on the podcast, Masters of Scale offers a unique insider’s guide, filled with insights, wisdom, and strategies that will inspire you to reimagine how you do business.
