Keith Rabois is currently a general partner at Founders Fund. Prior to joining Founders Fund, Keith was an early executive at several successful companies including PayPayl, LinkedIn, and the COO of Square. He also spent six years at Khosla Ventures prior to joining Founders Fund.
In this episode we talk about Keith’s start as a lawyer and why he decided to leave law, the moment he knew PayPal was going to be a success, and his philosophy on goal alignment. He also shares his thoughts on the joy he has for team building and mentoring, why regulatory risk doesn’t scare him, and the days when he used to scan every LinkedIn profile.
I hope you enjoy the show.
