Earlier on CNBC, Bill Gurley was interviewed to share thoughts on tech startups. Gurley said that companies are still learning how to approach regulation and regulatory environments.

Gurley suggested before going public, companies should put firm, concrete policies in place; however, this works against hypergrowth.

Users are and will always be the answer, said Gurley. Consumers are in favor of disruptive technology.

Gurley holds a seat on 12 company boards, including OpenTable (NASDAQ: OPEN), Uber, and Zillow (NASDAQ: Z).

When asked about Carl Icahn's attempt to take seats on eBay's (NASDAQ: EBAY) board, Gurley said he thought Icahn was taking advantage of a situation to make money. Gurley, in contrast to Icahn, said he believes eBay has been executing effectively.
