Two of Silicon Valley’s most successful venture capitalists say even the best ideas can be worthless without passion.
In the concluding session of Revenue Bootcamp, two money men – Mike Moritz, Sequoia Capital and Paul Graham, Y Combinator – sat down with Guy Kawasaki, managing director, Garage Technology Ventures to discuss the realities of venture capital funding in the technology industry – and the passion needed to succeed.
The day-long Revenue Bootcamp held July 10, 2009, on the Microsoft campus in Mountain View, Calif., brought together some top-notch experts to share tips, hints, lessons and advice about how to increase traffic with Search Engine Optimization, Search Engine Marketing and face-to-face meetings.
This video, “Fireside chat,” is the last in a series recorded during the one-day conference organized by Kawasaki.
