Unlike your standard-issue business books, Make Your Mark tackles the topic of building a business from a maker’s perspective, rather than a manager’s. It’s not about manufacturing more widgets or having a great meeting or even getting your startup to that mythical, magical IPO, it’s about how to make stuff that really matters—and build businesses with meaning.
To get road-tested advice on just what makes a great business, we tapped 21 designers, founders, and entrepreneurs from some of the world’s most creative companies—big and small—to share their wisdom. Folks like:
- Neil Blumenthal / Warby Parker
- Julie Zhuo / Facebook
- Tim O’Reilly / O’Reilly Media
- Andy Dunn / Bonobos
- Jane Ni Dhulchaointigh / Sugru
- Sebastian Thrun / Google X
- Shane Snow / Contently
- John Maeda / KPCB
- Craig Dalton / DODOCase
- Joel Gascoigne / Buffer
- & many more
Whether you’re about to launch a new company or are considering how to retool an existing business, our hope is that Make Your Mark will offer you fresh thinking, practical advice, and the moxie to get out there and make something that matters.
