Speaking at Stanford on Entrepreneurship in 2011

University of Sydney’s Global Executive MBA program: The Silicon Valley Module

I am going to be part of a panel with my good friend and mentor, Mike Seashols, talking about entrepreneurship in 2011.  This is the Silicon Valley part of the program for which the U of Sydney partners with Stanford.  This is the third year I have participated and it is always an interesting discussion with a good mixture of founders, professional CEOs, and folks from the venture community.

Prior to the panel, the MBA group is going to meet with one of the most successful entrepreneurs the valley has ever produced – Mark Leslie.  Mark is now a Stanford Prof and his classes are SRO.  He probably doesn’t remember this, but when I was raising money for an earlier venture he bent over backwards to try and help me out even though there was absolutely no benefit to him.  If you are a startup that does enterprise sales, his paper on the Sales Learning Curve is required reading. The valley would be a much more pleasant place if we all followed his and Mike’s example.  I will be sure to tweet and post about some of the things that the panel covers—in previous years there have been some great quotes and more importantly, interesting insights about what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur—so stay tuned!

    Thanks for mentioning Mark Leslie. It’s always good to know about those little nuggets that don’t show up on the Charlie Rose Show! Am looking forward to your updates on the panel outcome.
