Visonary 2009: Jim Clark Was Always Looking For An Exit Strategy . . .

Posted by Tom Foremski - July 1, 2009

Jim Clark, co-founder of Silicon Graphics and Netscape was one of four winners of the SDForum 2009 Visionary Awards. He spoke about his earlier life and how he was thrown out of school, then trying to get out of Texas, then trying to get out of the navy. It seems his instincts for an exit strategy have served him well as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur...

He also spoke about the importance of Stanford university and its encouragement of entrepreneurs. Other universities look down upon business people.
