SOMETHING VENTURED

"Great things don't really come out of the status quo," contend the risk-takers who helped fund and develop Apple, Intel, Genentech, Cisco, and Atari, among others. Through interviews with industry greats, this 2011 documentary tracks the emergence of American venture capitalism in the mid–20th century, taking viewers back to time when personal computers seemed like an unnecessary extravagance and shares in Microsoft were a risky investment. Highlighting the value of innovation, a final section asks what's next—from robotic surgery and nanotechnology to intelligent fabrics and green energy. English with English subtitles. Color. 85 minutes.economicsissues
