Howard Lindzon, founder of Stocktwits, hedge fund manager, investor and TechStars mentor took to the stage at The Next Web Conference 2011 to explain why there has never been a better time to build a business.

Giving his insights into business on the web, Lindzon talks about failure and how companies grow by building on their failures. He believes that if he could grow a web business in just five years, anyone can.

In this keynote we find out that Lindzon had the opportunity to invest in Twitter but didn’t take it, and so much more.
