IE Silicon Valley tour: 4) VC in SV

Michele Libraro presented what is likely the most important factor of the Silicon Valley repeated success in spurring innovation: the financial community.

Michele, now CEO of GlobalStartUps, has had a long hands-on experience in large telco corporations (i.e. CISCO) and the VC world.

I believe the topic he addressed is worth a course all together.

Here's a much longer version of what Michele actually had time to present:

- private equity & venture capital
- industry trends
- capitalizing a start-up
- organizational issues

IE Silicon Valley tour: 3) Google Geo

Among Google's presentation, we had Bernardo Hernandez (now Head of Geomarketing at Google) presenting the amazing innovations coming from Google Geo.

Once all the information are geo-referenced, how differently will we manage our access to every day tools? how UGC and community building will affect the growth and quality of geo-referenced information?

Here's a snippet of Berni's presentation:

IE Silicon Valley tour: 2) Innovation at YouTube

The first company on-site visit we planned was (guess where?) at the Google's headquarters in Mountain View.
After breakfast and a guided tour of the facilities (yes, with tour-guides...), we assembled a few company presentations. The overall topic was "how to preserve innovation".

Here's the presentation from my good friend Luis Garcia, international product manager at You Tube.
Luis had a very interactive presentation, to his words, using the group as beta-testers...
YouTube is probably one of the most amazing examples of a perfect-timing innovation whose deep disruptions are still to be fully witnessed.

Here's Luis's presentation:

- video as a social act
- dimension of the YT phenomena
- building communities
- seeds for innovation
