This week are doing something a little different. We are bringing you three of the talks from Lightspeed’s first Negotiation Summit with #ANGELS: Demystifying Power & Wealth in the Valley that recently took place at Twitter. You’ll here from top negotiators, founders and investors to hear their tips for negotiating in the valley.
In the last episode of our Negotiation Summit, I get the distinct pleasure to sit down with Max Levchin. Max is a Ukrainian-born American who moved to the states in In 1998. Soon after graduating from college, he co-founded Paypal, took the company public and then sold it to eBay. He then went on to found Slide, then sold it to Google, and is now the CEO & Founder of Affirm, a Lightspeed portfolio company. Max’s had to negotiate venture capital raises, sales of companies, partnerships, and more throughout his career and he talked with me about his top negotiation tips.
