Recently I had the chance to catch up with Tim Draper, Founder and Managing Director at DFJ and one of the most prominent figures in the global venture capital community.
In our wide-ranging interview, Tim talked about the development of the venture and startup ecosystem over the past decades. As many investors do, Tim elaborated on his personal preferences when it comes to investing including the stage and vertical he is most interested in and what qualities Tim believes are necessary to make a truly great founder.
As the founder of DraperU, Tim had thoughts on startup education and the release of StartupU. Bitten early by the bitcoin bug, Tim’s also bullish on the theme of bitcoin and gives a prediction of when the mass adoption of bitcoin will take place.
