In Deep with Angie Coiro Presents: Scott Hartley

  • Kepler's Books 1010 El Camino Real Menlo Park, CA, 94025 United States (map)

A contrarian perspective from a leading venture capitalist who contends that the future of advanced technological breakthroughs will come from college graduates who majored in the social sciences and humanities (the Fuzzies) as opposed to the more hardcore science concentrators (the Techies). Based on the author's extensive experience in evaluating and funding start-up companies, the book will feature dozens of timely case studies that will prove his point and will also be of great reassurance to liberal arts majors. 

Scott Hartley is a venture capitalist, has been an investment partner on Sand Hill Road, a Presidential Innovation Fellow at the White House, and worked at Google, Facebook, and Harvards Berkman Center. 

A Bay Area native, he moved to Palo Alto in 1993, where he attended elementary (Nixon), middle (Jordan), high school (Paly), and Stanford University.
