A refugee from the Soviet Union, an email from Apple and a $1 billion company: the full interview with the Russian co-founder of Evernote

In July we shared the best quotes from The Bell founder Liza Osetinskaya’s interview with Phil Libin — the son of immigrants from the USSR who in 2007, together with one of the pioneers of the Russian internet, Stepan Pachikov, founded Evernote. Today, Libin is trying to build a new business in Silicon Valley focused on artificial intelligence.

We are now publishing the full interview with Phil Lisin in English: how one email from Apple turned Evernote into a $1 billion company, and how another Russian expat, Yury Milner, led a revolution in Silicon Valley, as well as how to build a business along the principles of Netflix and HBO.
