THE ROLE OF VENTURE CAPITAL IN CREATING NEW PRODUCTS


Dayna Goldfine and Dan Geller, directors of the film Something Ventured, describe the role venture capital plays in creating new companies and products. They use the example of the video game Pong to illustrate how hard it can be to create a product that people later take for granted. Many companies that are large today were only able to grow from the money obtained from venture capitalists.
