Synopsis

Apple. Intel. Genentech. Atari. Cisco. Behind these revolutionary technology companies are a handful of men who saw opportunity where others did not: these are the original venture capitalists. All were backing and building companies before the term 'venture capital' had been coined: companies that led to the birth of biotechnology, microprocessors, personal computers and the internet.
SOMETHING VENTURED uncovers the dramatic ups and downs of how these companies came to be, and the hidden dramas behind some of the most famous names in business.
