Customer Acquisition is the Biggest Challenge for Startups, Says Founder Showcase Keynote, Keith Rabois

Posted by Amity Sims on 2013-03-13

With over a decade of executive experience, 13th Founder Showcase keynote, Keith Rabois is one of the most well-respected entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. His involvement with the “PayPal Mafia”, LinkedIn, Slide, and Square is a subject of fascination for many, as his contributions to some of the most influential companies remains a legacy. With his recent transition to Khosla Ventures, many are surely anxiously awaiting his next big move.

As we count down the days until his address at the March 27th Showcase, we look back to a memorable clip from TechCrunch Disrupt 2011. In this interview with Sarah Lacy (All Things D), Keith discusses what made PayPal so successful and advises new founders on the essentials for building a sustainable company.

“I think starting a company is actually relatively easy these days”, says Keith. “The hard part is getting user attention and building a critical density of talent. At PayPal, that critical density of talent is what allowed for a phenomenal outcome.”

On Wednesday, March 27th, Keith will be speaking on the topic of the “Future of Funding” alongside Chris Dixon, investor at Andreessen Horowitz. Together, these two prominent venture capitalists will address the future of fundraising and weigh in on how they envision investing in the coming years.
