100 Years of Awesomeness

A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Tuesday 13th March, 2012

5:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

Imagine building a company that lives through booms, bubbles and busts; a company that keeps innovating and creating value; a company that’s around in 100 years. It’s not as crazy as you think, but it requires a radical shift in start-up and investment culture. Far from the quick exit, it's all about believing in your vision and focusing on your users. If you do, then your company will last well into the future. In this presentation, Phil Libin will share how Evernote is winning over lifetime trust in a service, while simultaneously building what hopes to be a century old company.
