The Mentor Minute gives you exclusive startup video clips from the Founder Institute's worldwide network of 4,400+ mentors. For more Mentor Minutes, visit our Startup Founder 101 YouTube Channel

In this Mentor Minute, Phil Libin, founder and CEO of Evernote, urges entrepreneurs to pursue ideas that are "sufficiently epic" and not ones that could just potentially make money.

According to Phil;

"Because you are going to spend your life on it. Whether you think that you are or not, it is going to be a long time. So why would you do it on something insufficiently epic?" - Phil Libin

To hear more from Silicon Valley experts like Phil, make sure to get your tickets to the May 15th Founder Showcase, our industry-leading seed-stage startup event, gathering top technology founders and investors to hear and learn from, and helping to launch promising new companies to greatness.

If you could benefit from expert training and feedback to launch a company, apply to the Founder Institute today. We are currently accepting applications in the Silicon Valley and many other cities worldwide
