The best startup advice from Silicon Valley & beyond. Iconic CEOs — from Nike to Netflix, from Starbucks to Slack — share the stories and strategies that helped them grow from startups into global businesses.
On each episode of Masters of Scale, host Reid Hoffman — LinkedIn founder, Greylock partner and legendary Silicon Valley investor — proves an unconventional theory about how business scale, while his guests share the story of "how I built this company."

Lush Production Values- What a Treat

This production is well-thought out and wonderfully executed. Informative and well-paced, yes, but the work to create the music beds and transitions is a real pleasure to the ear. Kudos to this team

Reid please let the founders speak.

I really don’t appreciate this exercise in self promotion. There are much better podcasts out there where you can actually hear the founders’ voice. I wouldn’t waste my time on this one.

Excellent for Entrepreneurs!

Excellent podcast for those thinking of starting their own business, and existing business owners. So many ideas and informative to help you get in the right mindset. Get out your pen and paper and write down all the great tips and steps he shares. I really enjoyed listening to Reid and highly recommend!
