Netflix and chill: a fireside chat with Reed Hastings
Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings started out with a simple idea: DVDs delivered straight to your mailbox. Fast-forward to the streaming age, and Netflix is a cultural pace-setter with over 100 million global subscribers in 190 countries, bringing people together with original stories from all over the world. Hastings attributes this success to the company’s culture of diversity, employee autonomy, and relentless innovation. Hastings and Summit co-founder Jeff Rosenthal discuss how to foster an environment of freedom and responsibility, the formula for creating an iconic brand, and the future of television.
