about this episode

Stewart Alsop knows where the bodies are buried in the technology industry. A venture capitalist, he was the editor of Inc Magazine and InfoWorld. He started the Agenda and DEMO conferences. And was a model of success and mentor to a scrappy young Jason Calacanis. When Stewart sat down with Jason for this interview, he went deep on tech’s titans: from how he pissed off Steve Jobs (over and over) to his long-standing friendship with Bill Gates, to testifying before Congress at Microsoft’s antitrust trial. As if that weren’t enough, his big wins as a VC (including TiVo and Sonos) and misses (think: early Twitter).

about this episode

From the 2015 LAUNCH Festival! An inspiring fireside chat with Marc Benioff, CEO/Founder of Salesforce and one of the great leaders of our time. Talking to Adam Lashinsky of Fortune, Marc focuses on the incredible importance of philanthropy and why companies need to give back to their communities and improve the state of the world. Marc shares his personal journey in philanthropy, starting when Colin Powell invited him to the 1997 America’s Promise conference, to creating Salesforce & its 1-1-1 policy: dedicating 1% equity, 1% profit, and 1% employee time to giving back. Marc’s key advice to entrepreneurs: the intentions you set for your companies right now are going to result is what your company becomes; clarity and vision are key, right from the start. Join us!
