In this presentation, KPCB partner Bing Gordon takes a skillful look at what distinguishes the CEOs who build companies that rule the Web. A successful industry exec himself, Bing teases out the attributes, principles and practices of visionaries with bona fide Web 2.0 success stories. He captures key learnings from social, mobile and gaming, and draws on such bright minds as Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com; Mark Pincus, the CEO who led Zynga to a $1 billion IPO; and Neil Young, founder and CEO of game-maker ngmoco. Bing parses the role that a CEO plays in creating a scalable Web 2.0 organization at every turn, from personal strengths and team-building strategies to harnessing ascendant technologies and daring to set ambitious infrastructure goals.
