Google Ventures founder and CEO, and Middlebury alum Bill Maris (’97) has had quite an unpredictable career.  Currently he invests in startups at the epicenter of science, technology, and medicine.  He oversees $2.4B in capital, and has funded more than 300 companies in the GV portfolio, including Uber, Slack and Nest. In this talk, he’ll share his perspective on how he went from Vermont to Silicon Valley, and how entrepreneurs and innovation will shape our future.

This talk, held Monday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m. in Wilson Hall, will provoke, challenge, and inspire us as we engage in conversations that envision the future of Middlebury.

Following Bill Maris’ departure the Faculty Strategy Committee will be hosting a breakfast for all faculty, staff, and students who are interested in sharing ideas raised by this thought-provoking talk. Please join Cheryl Faraone, Chris Klyza, and Amy Morsman for breakfast and meaningful conversation in Redfield Proctor at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 12.
