My Friend Built A Million-Dollar Company: Here's How He Did It

6505 ratings | 125408 views
Today's video is a special one because unlike regular Business Casual videos, it covers a story that is still in progress. In fact, the story in this video is a personal one; today we'll go back to the earliest days of Business Casual to learn how I met an entrepreneur that was a great inspiration for starting this channel. Fran Villalba Segarra became one of my closest friends even before I had started Business Casual and while I was building this channel, he was laying the foundation for a company that today is valued at $4 million. This is the story of Internxt, a company developing decentralized software that was funded through a public cryptocurrency offering. This is a story that unlike most Behind the Business videos I am telling in present tense, not past.

How meta is it going to be when Company Man does his video, "The Decline Of Internxt ... What Happened?" now that your friend's "Million-Dollar" Company has failed so spectacularly after duping morons to buy into its ICO.

I don't understand why people don't work on more practical ideas. Technology is not everything. There are so many guaranteed simple money making business ideas.

Thanks for making these. It’s refreshing on YouTube. It’s also good to get a personal side and see people working hard and making money. Unlike the other you tubers who just spam merch and rubbish.

Jesus is the way to become rich........... He said ,"Trust me and all of your needs shall be met." Mathew @-27 …25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come in His Father’s glory with His angels, and then He will repay each one according to what he has done...

I'm not trying to be mean, but speaking as an engineer, that is an insanely bad idea, at least from a technical perspective. It's the worst possible solution from every possible perspective: privacy, security, performance, reliability, maintainability, scalability...

When i saw the word bitcoin i knew it was gonna be a fluze. From $20m to $3m just goes to show how this business only cares finding the next big coin. You can prolly get rich if you sell your business for what its worth at that time but not if u run it for 20 years. The whole tech business model is just not built for building intrinsic value, unless youre one of the big boys your company is pretty much worthless
