    About the Presenter

    Steve Blank is a “retired” serial entrepreneur and private investor. Steve has been a founder or participant in eight Silicon Valley startups since 1978. Steve’s last company E.piphany (NASDQ: EPNY) started in his living room in 1996.

These startups resulted in five IPO’s, and three very deep craters. Steve’s operational roles have spanned the gamut from CEO to VP of Marketing.

    Steve is currently writing a book about the methodology of sales and marketing in high-tech startups and is lecturing at the Haas School at U.C. Berkeley in the entrepreneurship program.
