I regret that I was unable to attend the conference put on by my friend, Chris Brigham and the Claremont Entrepreneurial Society this past Friday. I have been searching in vain for a write up of what transpired. If anyone has any indication of what happened, please let me know. I'd love to hear or read a synopsis.
As many of you know, I harbor ambitions -- or is it delusions? time will tell, of course -- of one day starting my own companies and so the question of entrepreneurship -- how to become one, who is one, and who is not -- has always been pressing on my mind.
In addition to the wonderful people at the Kauffman Foundation, the largest foundation that contributes to economic research and where in the spirit of full disclosure I am employed, I have also been guided by the writings and thinkings of Peter Thiel and Michael Arrington, one of Claremont McKenna's most successful entrepreneurs. In that model, I enjoyed this chat between the two of them about technology and start ups. Maybe you'll find it interesting and enlightening too?
