Evernote is one of those companies that I get excited about. They have a great product for ubiquitously capturing, storing and retrieving all the information of your life. The product runs on Windows, Mac, the Web and just about all mobile platforms and is free. I like the product and I like the company and follow both.
Phil Libin, the CEO, was recently at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in Beijing. Libin gave his take on why he doesn’t want to build a company just to be acquired, instead he wants to build a company for 100 years because it’s only worth building a company you love.
His three tips for building a hundred year company:
1. Do something that you love enough to devote the rest of your life to.
2. Make sure all of your investors feel the same way.
3. Surround yourself with people you to spend the next hundred years with.
