Business Ideas – 3 Business Lessons From Philip Knight by Evan Carmichael Today we’re going to look at how a young man left the secure job that his father wanted him to take to follow his passion in the sporting world. He went on to build one of the most well known companies in the world. This is the story of Nike founder Philip Knight and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. “We had no master plan. It was totally seat of the pants.” – Philip Knight Philip Knight (born February 24, 1938) is the co-founder and Chairman of Nike. Growing up in Portland, Oregon, Knight discovered he had a love for running and went to train with the legendary track coach Bill Bowerman at the University of Oregon. In addition to coaching, Bowerman was experimenting with creating new types of shoes and Knight field tested them on the track for him. After graduating, Knight went to graduate school at Stanford and signed up for a small business class. He had to create a business plan in the class and thought back to Bowerman’s shoes. In his business plan, Knight developed a blueprint for superior athletic shoes which could be produced cheaply in Japan. After taking a job as an accountant to make his father happy and hating it, Knight flew to Japan to find a factory to make the shoes. He returned home to create a partnership with Bowerman. They each invested $500 into the business and named it Blue Ribbon Sports (later changed to Nike).

Knight liked the name “Dimension Six” but his staff disagreed. One employee suggested “Nike” after the Greek goddess of victory. Knight then paid $35 to Carolyn Davidson, a University of Oregon student, to design the now famous “swoosh” logo. At the time Knight said “I don’t love it, but it will grow on me.” He was under a deadline to pick a logo so he went with it and a the new company was born. More Quotes “Ultimately, we wanted Nike to be the world’s best sports and fitness company. Once you say that, you have a focus.” “The trouble in America is not that we are making too many mistakes, but that we are making too few.” “Everybody wants a certain […]
