While Intel is known for countless industry-defining moments, there's one business decision that may not get as much attention: the formation of Intel Capital. Intel Capital investments have not only fueled innovation and profits for Intel, its creation redefined venture capital funding models forever.

Join Intel Alumni for an evening reflecting on the beginnings and perspective on the current state of the corporate venture industry. In conversation with Rob Siegel, Avram Miller will reflect on the early days of what has become one of the most successful corporate venture groups in the world. If time permits, Avram will share his views about the current state of corporate venture capital, life in Tel Aviv and insight into his upcoming book. We can expect it to be both informative and entertaining. Get your questions ready.
