Technology entrepreneur turned venture capitalist Peter Thiel has a simple message for startups who don’t have a durable long-term business plan: “It’s not enough for your company to take over the world,” he said. “It has to last.”
The San Francisco-based co-founder of PayPal Inc. was in Austin to promote his new book, “Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future,” and spoke to an audience of about 160 people at the Capital Factory downtown.
In 2002, eBay Inc. bought PayPal for $1.5 billion. Thiel, who is estimated by Forbes to be worth about $2.2 billion, is now an outspoken advocate for entrepreneurship and innovation. He has caused a measure of controversy along the way by encouraging young people to forgo college to launch their own ventures.
