Want to succeed? Try failing

Randy Komisar of Kleiner Perkins, in this entrepreneur though leader lecture given at Stanford University, says that only a company that can deal with failure and still make money has any chance of succeeding. The talk’s an old one – from 2004 – but the themes still resonate today.
