SOMETHING VENTURED tells the story of the creation of an industry that went on to become the single greatest engine of innovation and economic growth in the 20th century. It is told by the visionary risk-takers who dared to make it happen…Tom Perkins, Don Valentine, Arthur Rock, Dick Kramlich and others. The film also includes some of our finest entrepreneurs sharing how they worked with these venture capitalists to grow world-class companies like Intel, Apple, Cisco, Atari, Genentech, Tandem and others.
Beginning in the late 1950′s, this small group of high rollers fostered a one-of-a-kind business culture that encouraged extraordinary risk and made possible unprecedented rewards. They laid the groundwork for America’s start-up economy, providing not just the working capital but the guidance to allow seedling companies to reach their full potential. Our lives would be dramatically different without the contributions that these venture capitalists made to the creation of PCs, the Internet and life-saving drugs.
When & Where
CINEMA CONNECT creates community screenings that inform, inspire and empower audiences. With partner organizations, we produce recurring transformational film series that connect people with compelling films and a shared experience.
WHAT ARE COMMUNITY SCREENINGS? Community screenings are an emerging film distribution model that differs from theatrical and home screening in that the nature of these screenings fosters the discussion of the issues and bonding of local community members. These screenings take place in public venues with attendance between 25 and 300 people and provide incremental revenue for the filmmakers. These screenings also serve to amplify social media efforts and further the word of mouth on the film.
