What an honor to have the opportunity to spend the day with my business partner, the legendary Bill Gross.🥇Bill has personally started and exited from 7 COMPANIES valued at more than $1 BILLION — he is truly one of the GREATEST unicorn founders of ALL TIME.
Bill’s been starting businesses since he was 12 years old selling candy at the Jr. High bus stop. 🍭🚌 The month he graduated from Caltech, IBM released the PC and Bill created H.A.L., a natural language interface which Lotus Development acquired for $10 Million. 💽 Inspired by his son entering Kindergarten in 1991, Bill started the education software company Knowledge Adventure which was acquired by Vivendi in 1995 for $90 Million.
Bill looks for opportunities that are BIG and broken and then brainstorms technology solutions to fix them. Twenty-three years ago, he started Idealab. During its more than two decades, Idealab has started more than 150 companies, created more than 10,000 jobs, and had more than 45 successful IPOs and acquisitions. Few tech entrepreneurs found ONE “unicorn” — a tech company with a market valuation of over $1 billion. Bill Gross has started and exited from 7 and has another one brewing in our active portfolio called Energy Vault which just won Fast Company’s 2019 World Changing Ideas Awards in Energy.
Bill may make success look easy to come by, but the truth is, not all of Bill’s companies are successful. Of the 150 companies he created, 60 closed or did not succeed. But just like all GOATs, Bill gets rewarded in public for what he does in private. Get this — Bill creates a new company idea EVERY single day. Now that’s BUSINESS #MASTERY! We are going to talk about this and more in August when Bill joins me on stage at #BusinessMastery Las Vegas. Click the link below to learn more about this #businessbootcamp! 📈
Bill, thank you for the impact you are making in the world. So much love and respect for you, brother. You are the best at turning ideas into reality and I am excited to partner with you at Idealab as we launch and support startups that are developing disruptive solutions to significant problems that humanity faces. 🔥👊💯😎
