Netflix Co-Founder Marc Randolph to Talk in Education City Speaker Series
Serial entrepreneur and co-founder and first CEO of Netflix Marc Randolph will be sharing lessons from his journey – at what is now the world’s largest streaming service – in the upcoming edition of the Education City Speaker Series of Qatar Foundation. The discussion will be held virtually on 23 August, from 5 pm to 6 pm.
Titled Don’t Let Dreams Be Dreams: What to Do with an Idea and themed around innovation and entrepreneurship and sustainability – Randolph’s talk will focus on the start-up culture and how to foster entrepreneurial mindsets, as well as how to start building innovative businesses that are socially and environmentally conscious.
Randolph’s talk is a timely event as Qatar’s start-up ecosystem is seeing healthy growth, with the country being ahead in the region in terms of ease of starting and developing a business as per the 2019-2020 National Entrepreneurship Context Index created by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor.
Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP), which is also under Qatar Foundation, is home to a host of programmes that aim to support the start-up culture and ecosystem in Qatar, including the Arab Innovation Academy, XLR8 and Stars of Science. These programmes improve the country’s private sector and help transform startups into small and medium-sized enterprises (SME).
The Education City Speaker Series edition with Marc Randolph will be a 45-minute discussion, which will be followed by a Q&A session, an opportunity for the online audience to ask Randolph their questions.
The discussion will be available to view on Microsoft Teams with English, Arabic, French, Spanish, and Italian subtitles, and on Qatar Foundation’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
