StartupBD: Learning from LinkedIn to Take Intelligent Risks

November 16, 2015

One of the partners I’ve worked very closely with over the past few years is LinkedIn. They are a great company and it is a great experience to work with them and understand both their strategies and their tactics.

Clearly, something is working well for them as they recently celebrated the amazing milestone of 400 millions members!

I was recently at their Sales Connect event and was struck by LinkedIn’s approach to taking intelligent risks. This is something they’ve mastered so it was really inspiring to understand how they approach intelligent risk-taking.

I’ll do my best to summarize but in short:

  1. Understand the upside and the downside
  2. Consider the expected outcomes
  3. Manage your portfolio balance
