Keynote Speaker

Venture Network, a global network of venture capital funds. The firm’s
investments include Skype, Hotmail, Tesla, Baidu, Theranos, Athenahealth, Solar
City, Box, TwitchTV, SpaceX, Cruise Automation and Parametric Technology and
many others.





He created viral marketing, a marketing method for
exponentially spreading an electronic service from customer to customer,
instrumental to the successes of Hotmail and Skype and other applications,
particularly effective for mail and communications applications. Arguably,
social media, crowdsourcing and growth hacking are all outgrowths of viral
marketing.





 

He is regularly featured on all major networks as a
proponent for entrepreneurship, innovative governance, free markets and
Bitcoin, and has received various awards and honors including the World
Entrepreneurship Forum’ s “Entrepreneur of the World” for 2015, and is listed
as one of the top 100 most powerful people in finance by Worth Magazine, #1
most networked VC by AlwaysOn, #7 on the Forbes Midas List, and #48 most
influential Harvard Alum.





In promoting entrepreneurship, he created Draper University
of Heroes, a residential and online school based in San Mateo, Ca to help
extraordinary people accomplish their life missions. He started Innovate Your
State, a non-profit dedicated to crowdsource innovation in government, and
BizWorld, a non-profit that teaches young children how business and
entrepreneurship work. 





He served on the California State Board of Education, and
led a movement for Local Choice in schools culminating in becoming proponent
for a statewide initiative for School Vouchers. He also led a statewide
initiative to create competitive governance with Six Californias.





Tim Draper received a Bachelor of Science from Stanford
University with a major in electrical engineering and a Master of Business
Administration from the Harvard Business School.
