Eventbrite - GEW 2014: Entrepreneur Movie Night | "Something Ventured"

Conceived by co‐executive producer Paul Holland, SOMETHING
VENTURED tells the story of the creation of an industry that went on to
become the single greatest engine of innovation and economic growth in
the 20th century. It is told by the visionary risk‐takers who dared to make
it happen: Tom Perkins, Don Valentine, Arthur Rock, Dick Kramlich and
others. The film also includes some of our finest entrepreneurs sharing
how they worked with these venture capitalists to grow world‐class
companies like Intel, Apple, Cisco, Atari, Genentech, Tandem and others.
Beginning in the late 1950's, this small group of high rollers fostered a
one‐of‐a‐kind business culture that encouraged extraordinary risk and
made possible unprecedented rewards. They laid the groundwork for
America's start‐up economy, providing not just the capital but the
guidance to allow seedling companies to reach their full potential. Our
lives would be dramatically different without the contributions that these
venture capitalists made to the creation of PCs, the Internet and life‐
saving drugs.
The film is directed by Emmy‐Award‐winning filmmakers Dan Geller and
Dayna Goldfine, the film will be widely released in 2011. It is executive
produced by Paul Holland of Foundation Capital and Molly Davis of
Rainmaker Communications
