Your Morning Dose of Inspiration

Venrock – one of the oldest venture capital firms (40 years old and going strong) has released a magnificent book titled Shaping the Future: 40 Years of Innovation.  While self promotional, they’ve done it in such a clever and powerful way that all it does as you read through it is smile and get excited about the promise of entrepreneurship.    I encourage you to put it up full screen and take your time reading through it.

The focus is on 40 startups and the entrepreneurs that created them that Venrock has funded over the past 40 years.  Sprinkled throughout are some pearls from Laurance Rockefeller, the founding force behind Venrock.

Great stuff – and very nicely done.

    I want to hear the stories around the Fenton Thanksgiving table. Between Noel & Peter, they've been at the center of some pretty cool companies.

    Yeah, but I’d always rather be at the entrepreneurs thanksgiving table to hear the stories.  That’s where the real center is.  And – I thought the Venrock guys did a really nice job of putting the entrepreneurs front and center in this piece.
