Description

In an event jointly sponsored by the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) and the Computer History Museum (CHM), venture capital trailblazers William Draper III, C. Richard Kramlich, and Franklin “Pitch” Johnson discussed the highlights and challenges of their long careers and legendary firms. The panel was moderated by venture partner Christy Remey Chin of the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation. The discussion was followed by a brief talk by the Exponential Center’s Distinguished Scholar, Sebastian Mallaby, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, who described his latest book project on the history of venture capital. New Enterprise Associates Cofounder and Chairman Emeritus of the Industry Advisory Board Charles Newhall III provided closing remarks.

NVCA and CHM announced at the event that they have joined forces to preserve and make freely accessible the NVCA’s rich oral history collection of industry leaders.
