This talk is by Andy Bechtolsheim at the Stanford Engineering Hero Lecture Program.
Andy is one of the co-founders of Sun Microsystems and started four tech companies in Silicon Valley. He was also the first Google investor and made a fortune with it worth hundreds of millions USD. He is a German who studied at the Technical University in Munich and got a scholarship in the US and did a PhD at Stanford before he started Sun Microsystems.
In my opinion he is one of the most successful technology entrepreneurs in history from Germany. He is not so well known in Germany – which is unfortunate.
