Dear Founder: A Conversation with Howard Schultz and Maynard Webb

Recognized for his entrepreneurship and servant leadership, Howard Schultz built Starbucks Coffee Company into one of the world’s most recognized and respected businesses, a company committed to strengthening communities through human connection and social innovation. Today, Starbucks has 28,000 stores in 77 countries and ranks third on Fortune’s list of “World’s Most Admired Companies.”

Maynard Webb has helped found, fund, and grow dozens of successful companies, and has driven strategic change at Salesforce, eBay, and Visa, among other worldwide corporations. Maynard is often the expert sought after by startups looking to scale, entrepreneurs needing advice on raising a new round and global corporations seeking guidance around complex issues. He is the “go to” when Silicon Valley wants to know how to get things done.

In this fireside chat, Howard and Maynard will share insights from their experiences starting and scaling companies. Much of the conversation will be inspired by Maynard’s new book, Dear Founder (September 2018 | St. Martin’s Press). Coming on the heels of his NYT best-seller, Rebooting Work, Dear Founder is a compilation of letters from Maynard written for anyone who leads, manages or wants to start a business. The letters are reflections from battle scars and lessons learned through these experiences.

Howard calls Dear Founder “a ‘must have,’ not only for anyone thinking of or contemplating a startup, but…an extraordinary resource for leaders and managers in every sector of industry.”

Join us for savvy insight, encouragement, and a dose of reality from two of the business world’s most respected and experienced leaders.
