The delegation wanted to learn what makes Silicon Valley tick, so they can work to create a similar environment at home. It was very inspirational to see how committed they are to establishing an even more entrepreneurial culture.
Among other things, I encouraged them to “create a playground in which really smart people can experiment freely and fearlessly.” I’d say that’s one of the key differences between Silicon Valley and other places. If you aren't taking risks, you aren't innovating.

After watching the trailer, check out short videos of individual team stories. Pretty amazing stuff.

Thanks to generous sponsorship by Deloitte, we are in the process of formalizing the Stanford Entrepreneurship Network (SEN). This is a federation of at least 15 groups on campus that are related to entrepreneurship through teaching, research and/or outreach.
The organization's official kickoff is on October 10, but in the meantime, the website has launched. We'll be beefing it up over time, so do send suggestions for what you would find useful. A big "thank you" goes out to STVP Program Coordinator, Christina Harvett, for all of her work to put this together.
