Something Ventured (DVD)
“Interlocking tales of ambition, wealth, and occasional heartbreak, will capture imaginations.” —The New York Times
Directed by Emmy-Award-winning filmmakers Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine (Ballets Russes), this entertaining and inspiring documentary nimbly maps the creation of an industry that went on to become the single greatest engine of innovation and economic growth in the 20th century. Told by the visionary risk-takers who dared to make it happen—Tom Perkins, Don Valentine, Arthur Rock, Dick Kramlich and others—the film also features the audacious industrialists behind such groundbreaking companies as Intel, Apple, Cisco, Atari, Genentech, PowerPoint and Tandem. Our lives would be dramatically different without the contributions that these venture capitalist pioneers and their entrepreneurial partners have made to the creation of life-saving drugs, personal computers and the Internet.
DVD Extras Include:
- HD transfer, enhanced for widescreen viewing
- Five deleted scenes, including additional interviews on Steve Jobs and Apple
- English subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired (SDH)
...a chronicle of cutting-edge innovation and staggering wealth-creation, as well as the heretofore untold history of some of the corporate world's biggest names, such as Intel, Apple, and Cisco.
...interlocking tales of ambition, wealth, and occasional heartbreak, will capture imaginations.
A fascinating and easily accessible history lesson... should prove invaluable as a teaching tool in business schools.
