In this Mind the Chat, Marco Marinucci meets Federico Faggin. Not an ordinary Silicon Valley entrepreneur, nor an ordinary physicist nor "ordinary inventor" - his material achievements in physics, electronics and, generally speaking, our lives (just think microprocessor and touchscreen) are countless - but even in the range of extra-ordinary, he might be off the chart. In this chat, they focus on his current field of focus: study the nature of consciousness, as a direct consequence of an extra-corporeal experience experience he had in 1989.
Alberto Onetti, Chairman Mind the Bridge, sits down with Michiel Van Haersma Buma, Senior Implementation Manager for Shell Ventures, to discuss in depth how a global CVC like Shell Ventures is addressing the (missing) relationship between portfolio companies and the corporate business units.
How to get funded by a Corporate Venture Capital (CVC)? Mind the Bridge asked Suzanna Chiu, Head of Amadeus Ventures at the last Scaleup Summit in Madrid.
How can the lessons learnt from starting the Startup programs of Microsoft, Salesforce or the scaling of an entity like Startup Weekend be of use for the larger audience of medium and large corporations in their quest for innovation? Marco Marinucci, founder Mind the Bridge, sat down with Ludo (Ludovic) Ulrich, a partner at the San Francisco based Silicon Foundry.
