The Venture Mindset: a transformative playbook for delivering extraordinary results in modern organizations 

Presenter: Professor Ilya Strebulaev

Stanford University Graduate School of Business

Date: Tuesday, June 4, 2024
9:00am PT, 12:00pm ET

About this Event:

 

A transformative playbook for delivering extraordinary results in modern organizations from Stanford professor Ilya Strebulaev, the foremost academic expert on venture capital, and technology executive Alex Dang, known for his work at Amazon and as a partner at McKinsey.

 

Behind life changing companies like Amazon, Google, Moderna, SpaceX, and Zoom are Venture Capital investors. VCs are known for their extraordinary ability to spot emerging trends, identify disruptive startups, attract talent, and bring new industries into being. THE VENTURE MINDSET is a new mental model where failure is a must, ideas are rejected in their myriads in search of a single winner, due diligence is put on its head, dissent is encouraged, plugs are pulled, and time horizons are extended. It is fundamentally different from the mindset found throughout the rest of the business world. This mindset helps leaders to develop a strong pipeline of ideas, make smarter, quicker decisions, and deliver more value at scale.

 

This webinar will be hosted by moderator Sameera Bazaaz, HBS Angels Board Member and DC Chapter Chair
