Master Class - Tim Draper: Iron Man’s Investor and his “silk road” for venture capital


Tim Draper
Founder of Draper Associates, Draper Fisher Jurvetson and Draper University of Heroes

Tim Draper is founding partner of leading venture capital firms Draper Associates and DFJ. 

Tim's original suggestion to use viral marketing in web-based email to geometrically spread an Internet product to its market was instrumental to the successes of Hotmail, YahooMail, and Gmail and has been adopted as a standard marketing technique by thousands of businesses. 

Venture successes include Skype, Overture, Baidu, Tesla, Parametric Technology, Hotmail, Digidesign, Twitch.tv, and hundreds of others. 

He was ranked 52 on the list of the 100 most influential Harvard Alumni, and seven on the Forbes Midas List. He was named Always-On #1 top venture capital deal maker. He was awarded the Commonwealth Club's Distinguished Citizen Award for achievements in green and sustainable energy. 

To further encourage entrepreneurship, Tim  started BizWorld.org, a non-profit for children to learn entrepreneurship, Draper University of Heroes, a school for entrepreneurs 18-28, and he leads SixCalifornias, an initiative to improve the governance of California.
