SPARKS — Bill Reichert will present “Garage Ventures - Art of the Start: The Future of Innovation and Entrepreneurship” from 7:30 to 9 a.m. today at John Ascuaga’s Nugget. This lecture is presented free to the public courtesy of The Chamber.
An excellent and motivating speaker, Bill Reichert is a Managing Director of Garage Technology Ventures, a seed-stage and early-stage venture capital firm based in Los Altos, Calif.
The worlds of venture capital, entrepreneurship and innovation have changed dramatically in the last few years. New platform technologies are enabling entire new categories of innovation to take off, while reducing the cost of launching a new business. Globalization has expanded the market opportunity for startup companies, while also increasing competition. The economic roller coaster of the last few years has substantially altered the investor landscape.
In this new world, what does it take to create a successful company? The rules have changed.
Come listen and discuss the new rules for successful innovation and entrepreneurship with Reichert, managing director of Garage Technology Ventures. Entrepreneurs starting or running a new company are aware of numerous problems and challenges. Solving legal issues, raising capital and operating funds and other issues can seem insurmountable.
