Some highlights from Ed Catmull’s Creativity Inc.

Designers at AngelList

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 16:16:14 +0000

Must be a 1-(wo)man startup. Must code. Must write good copy. Must be passionate about solving problems for our customers, not “designing.” Must fix other people’s designs and front-end code on production (people ship whenever they want). Must help our 1-(wo)man startups with their design problems. Must force your help on them when needed. Must...

No email at AngelList

Fri, 22 Mar 2013 18:05:01 +0000

We use very little email at AngelList. Most of our communication happens on Yammer, HipChat, Tracker and face-to-face. This probably gets us a 90% reduction in email. If you’re running your company via email, you’re missing out on newer, more effective communications technologies. Yammer is our company mailing list Yammer has nested conversations, search, inline...

6-year vesting

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 16:30:50 +0000

Every team member of AngelList is on a 6-year vesting schedule. Including the founders. Why? Because it takes a long time to build something important. And we want everyone to stick around for a long time. Because we want people who are here for the mission, not a payday. Because it sells prospective hires: the...

The entrepreneurial age will be as important as the industrial age and the information age. In the industrial and information ages, we learned how to put physics and information to great use. Physics and information were also the basis for an organization’s differentiation and victory. In the entrepreneurial age, physics and information will be replaced...

Mon, 18 Feb 2013 18:03:08 +0000

For an entrepreneur, if it is possible to make it better, she must make it better. If it is possible to make it more accessible, she must make it more accessible. If it is impossible to make it better or broader, she innovates. Starting a great Italian restaurant is not entrepreneurship because the proprietors make...
