Venture Capitalists

Venture CapitalistsEarly Bay Area Venture Capitalists: Shaping the Business and Industrial Landscape documents through videotaped interviews with the first generation of venture capitalists the origins and evolution of the venture capital industry in California during the 1960s and 1970s. The project explores and explains through the words of participants how venture capital originated in the Bay Area, its intersection with national legislation and policy, the significance of its location, and its role in creating the electronics and biotechnology industries in California.
