RECOMMENDED: Something Ventured - The Movie
We're all so much more likely to make great decisions when we understand how we got here, but it's rare to have a thoughtful and engaging storyteller.
At the SuperReturn US West conference this week, Paul Holland, General Partner at Foundation Capital, mentioned that he had produced a movie a few years ago about the history of venture capital called SOMETHING VENTURED - RISK, REWARD, AND THE ORIGINAL VENTURE CAPITAL.
"Directed by Emmy-Award-winning filmmakers Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine, SOMETHING VENTURED maps the creation of an industry that went on to become the single greatest engine of innovation and economic growth in the 20th century. The movie features some of the country's finest entrepreneurs and their stories with the venture capitalists to grow companies like Intel, Apple, Cisco, Atari and others."
