21st Century Entrepreneurship: Lessons from Silicon Valley

The Project - in association with Callaghan Innovation - are thrilled to be hosting Bill Reichert, Managing Director at Garage Technology Venture. As AUT's inaugural Entrepreneur in Residence, Bill will be in Auckland for two events, a 3hr morning masterclass on Thursday 25 May, and an evening keynote the following week on Thursday 1 June.

The international ecosystem supporting innovation and entrepreneurship has changed dramatically in just the last ten years. As the global hub of venture capital and entrepreneurship, Silicon Valley has also changed. In this session, Bill Reichert, a Silicon Valley serial entrepreneur turned venture capitalist, will outline the key changes that entrepreneurs, investors and policymakers need to understand to be successful in this new world.

Bill Reichert has over 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur and operating executive. Since co-founding Garage in 1998, Bill has focused on early-stage information technology and materials science companies. He has been a board director or board observer at CaseStack, WhiteHat Security, ClearFuels Technology, Simply Hired, MiaSole, D.light Design, ThermoCeramix, and VisaNow, among others. Prior to Garage, Bill was a co-founder or senior executive in several venture-backed technology startups, including Trademark Software, The Learning Company, and Academic Systems. Earlier in his career, he worked at McKinsey & Company, Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., and the World Bank.

Bill earned a B.A. at Harvard College and an M.B.A. from Stanford University. He was a founding board member and a Chairman of the Churchill Club, and a Board Member of the Silicon Valley Association of Startup Entrepreneurs. Currently he is the Chairman of the Small Fund Roundtable of the VC Taskforce and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations in New York
