In this episode of the Mentor Minute, Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote dispels the myth of how startups come up with original ideas and describes a better way to do it instead. 

To hear more from Phil, make sure to apply soon to the Silicon Valley Founder Institute where he will be mentoring a special Spring semester, alongside other top entrepreneurs, and aiming to launch the next billion dollar startup.

According to Phil;

A lot of people think that the way startups are started is that someone has a stroke of lightning and then they go do it. The reality is that this almost never happens. - Phil Libin

               

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
