We are super excited and quite honored to announce today that Peter Thiel will be joining the TechCrunch50 program on Monday, September 8 for a one-on-one interview with me from the main stage. As you probably know, Peter is the President and Chairman of Clarium Capital and the Managing Partner of the Founders Fund. Before starting Clarium and the Founders Fund, Peter served as the Chairman and CEO of PayPal, the company he co-founded and eventually sold to eBay for $1.5 billion.

In our conversation with Peter, we will ask him to share his thoughts on what he looks for in start-up investments, as well as where he thinks the market opportunities exist for new companies and emerging technologies.
