!Description
Reid Hoffman is one of the most successful tech innovators and investors of the last decade. He has co-founded numerous Silicon Valley success-stories such as LinkedIn and PayPal. He will be speaking at the Silicon Valley Comes to Oxford forum in the U.K., and he has written this exclusive guest blog post for Tech Europe. The theme of his post is: A decade of entrepreneurship and investing — five lessons learned and advice for entrepreneurs and innovators in the coming decade.

Over the past decade, tech entrepreneurs and innovators have scaled some of the industry’s highest peaks and struggled through its lowest valleys. In that time period, I had my share of successes and failures: I was part of the founding team at PayPal, I co-founded and ran LinkedIn, where I am now executive chairman, and I have advised and invested in more than 80 high tech start-ups, including high-fliers such as Facebook, Zynga and Flickr, as well as a number of others with more limited elevation.
