Leo Polovets on Building LinkedIn, Qualities of a Successful Founder, and Trying New Things

Leo Polovets has had a wild ride so far... he was 2nd engineering hire at LinkedIn after leaving Microsoft and later worked at Google. After leaving Google Leo thought he would return to building startups, this time as a founder. Instead, Leo ended up falling into VC, where he has been for the last 8 years. Leo and I have an awesome chat about what it was like to build LinkedIn and he shares amazing advice to young people regarding trying new things. You can follow Leo on Twitter @lpolovets and read his blog, Coding VC, at codingvc.com... and of course, you can also find Leo on LinkedIn.
