Sample text

Look for a legal partner on your side. (Mario Rosati, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati) Lawyers are not the most important people for your venture. But they are an important factor. To be successful, the whole thing has to come together. And lawyers are an important support player. Especially, since they can help you to lay the right foundations for the more important issues such as capital and people. Although they rnight not be able to get the capital or the people for you, they can help you in organizing the business in such a way that it is attractive for an investor to make an investment and for people to join your venture.

The decision will be made that way. I think anybody does not really own that business. It is not afamily owned business. You have investors in the company who own a big chunk of the company, the employees own a chunk of the company, so in a sense I am a steward of the company. My job is to make the company grow, my job is stewardship, my job is not ownership in the sense that I own it and go around making sure that people salute when I go by. That' s ownership. And ownership is about micromanaging things.

Lt will become easier for every company, no matter where it is located, to be tied into a worldwide network of partners and customers, since the internet eliminates a Iot of time and space issues that used to add enorrnously to the costs of cornrnunication. Thus the need for businesses to be in the center of an industry might decline, since the need for physical proximity will be different. You will probably be able to do it with an airplane flight every month as opposed to having to be there every day.
