‘Entrepreneurs Shouldn’t Respect Authority’ says Founder of Sun Microsystems

The Innovation Center for Denmark and Start X Labs put on a brilliant event with co-founder of tech giant Sun Microsystems Vinod Khosla. I was lucky to grab Vinod for a quick interview where he summarized his talk about how to teach entrepreneurs irreverence. “It’s important not to learn not to respect authority too much,” said Vinod, who also told the audience that he throws food at his kids across the dinner table sometimes to teach them irreverence and to break conventional molds. Vinod says the same should be taught for entrepreneurship in order to succeed.
