Stanford just posted videos from the talk I gave for its Entrepreneurial Thought Leader Series back in February.
The school created three short videos from my talk on the birth of venture capital and America’s entrepreneurial economy, which runs 56 minutes in its entirety. One video focuses on the birth of the industry: another is on the industry’s first home run (Digital Equipment Corp.); and the last asks and (hopefully) answers the question: why did Silicon Valley take over leadership of the tech world in the 1970s?
Click here to see the videos. The Stanford ecorner also has hundreds of other great videos from pioneers and current leaders in Silicon Valley. So it’s worth checking out even if you don’t want to see my stuff.
Speaking update: Looks like I am heading back to lovely Palo Alto. I just got invited to moderate a panel at Stanford’s Global Technology Symposium on Friday March 27. I am moderating the panel on corporate venture capital with executives from IBM (Claudia Fan Munce), Microsoft (Dan’l Lewin) and Google (David Lawee).
