The Bay Area Series - An Invested Mind
Tim Draper delivers his keynote address to investors at the second installment of DBS' The Bay Area Series.
“You’ve got to learn to lose,” argues Tim Draper, deliberating on the ebb and flows of venture success. “You’ve got to have some tolerance for failure in order to get the returns you want.”
Indeed, one can safely assume that the eminent Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Draper, Fisher and Juverston (DFJ) - a Venture Capital firm with more than US$4B worth of assets under its management - has his finger on the pulse when it comes to investing. He has, after all, led the funding of some of the world’s most disruptive tech companies like Skype, SolarCity, Baidu, Tesla, SpaceX, Theranos, IndieGogo, Twilio and Hotmail - with spectacular results. He has also been named "Always-On No.1 Top Venture Capital Deal-Maker" in 2008, 7th on the Forbes Midas List and 52nd on the 100 Most Influential Harvard Alumni list.
Delivering his keynote address at The Marina Bay Sands, Tim Draper engaged a packed auditorium of investors with acute wit and refreshing candor at Inside the Mind of Tim Draper - the second installment of DBS’ The Bay Area Series.
Also delivering their addresses at the event were Quaeed Motiwala, Managing Director of Draper Nexus; Eric Manlunas, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Wavemaker Partners and Simon Cook, CEO of DFJ Espirit.
Subsequently, Tim Draper also participated in a thoroughly insightful panel discussion alongside Lim Chu Chong, Regional Head of SME Banking, DBS, and Tan Su Shan, Group Head, Consumer Banking and Wealth Management, DBS - joined by The Bay Area Series' resident Emcee and Moderator, Melvin Yuan.
