A conversation with:

Venture Partner, Redpoint Ventures
Join us for an inspiring evening as two of Silicon Valley’s key business leaders, Bill Coleman and Jim Fruchterman, discuss how they’ve turned their own professional successes into ventures that foster change and better the greater community. Coleman, co-founder of BEA Systems, the fastest growing technology company in history, and Fruchterman, recipient of the 2006 MacArthur Genius Award, will talk about their passion for social improvement.
What are the triumphs, risks, and challenges in social benefit entrepreneurship? They will elaborate on the models of change that drive and sustain their work, issuing a final call for change that links local action in Silicon Valley to the broader global community.
