Closed to the Public

Google Ventures founder and CEO, Bill Maris (Middlebury College ’97), invests in startups at the epicenter of science, technology, and medicine, oversees $2.4B in capital, and has funded more than 300 companies in the GV portfolio, including Uber, Slack and Nest. In this talk, he’ll share his perspective on his unpredictable career, how he went from Vermont to Silicon Valley, and how entrepreneurs and innovation will shape our future. Following the lecture, Prof. Jeff Langholz will lead a discussion of the implications of Maris’ vision for the future of learning at MIIS.

This is the first lecture in the Envisioning Middlebury series (http://www.middlebury.edu/about/president/envisioning-middlebury/speake…).
