Netflix, while often viewed as a media company, is one of the most iconic tech companies of our time. Ever since Netflix published their incredible Netflix Culture: Freedom and Responsibility deck in 2009, I’ve viewed them as a much more powerful force than people realize.

The video of the week is Reed Hastings accepting an award for the 2014 Entrepreneurial Company of the Year. Enjoy!
