Announcing CTV's new podcast!

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited this month to launch Columbia Technology Ventures’ first-ever podcast series, available for download and streaming on Soundcloud and iTunes. The podcasts are a great opportunity to hear from informative and engaging industry figures on topics related to venture capital, entrepreneurship, tech transfer, innovation and more, as well as catch up on any CTV events you may have missed.

Currently you can hear podcasts from speakers including Carlo Rizzuto of Versant Ventures (Venture Capital Perspectives); Xavier Hughes of the U.S. Dept. of Labor, Cheryl Martin, formerly of the U.S. Dept. of Energy, and Javier Saade, formerly of the U.S. Small Business Administration (Obama’s Startup Nation); Marian Nakada of Johnson & Johnson Innovation, Bob Silverman of Roche and Steven Weinstein of Novartis Ventures (Biopharma Perspective on Early Venture Investing and R&D); and more! Subscribe to our podcast on Soundcloud or iTunes, and keep an eye out for more new content coming.

We are looking forward later this month to #StartupColumbia, a two-day conference led by Columbia Entrepreneurship celebrating innovation, entrepreneurship, and the creation of new ventures that make our lives richer and address the world's most pressing problems. This year, Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel is the keynote speaker and Venmo founder Iqram Magdon-Ismail will give a special address. We hope you will join us April 29 for this excellent event.
