Lecture Description

More venture capital means more companies, but it does not necessarily mean more innovation, says Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft. And on that same token, the restrictions in financing that resulted from the financial crisis of 2008/2009 will not necessarily quash the future of innovation, either. Ballmer believes that the best ideas in technology - true next steps - will come to light despite even amidst the most inhospitable market conditions.
