We drove to Standford University today to hear Peter Thiel speak to the students as well as take questions from the crowd. Peter is quite the tech entrepreneur, co-founder of Paypal, first outside investor in Facebook and has his fingers in many of the hottest startups in North America.
Peter spoke about his time at Stanford, the bubbles that he sees (education was one of them), his investments and what he thinks the future looks like. It was an interesting talk with lots of questions ranging from clean tech to how the Thiel Fellowship works. He also told a few stories about the early days at Facebook. All in all it was a great event!
