High-tech visionary still looking ahead

Abstract:
Steve Jurvetson has already proven himself in Silicon Valley as an alpha venture capitalist. Among his many successful bets was Hotmail, the e-mail service acquired by Microsoft back in 1997, making e-mail free for the masses and cementing Jurvetson's reputation as a high-tech seer.

Venture capitalists look for startups like Hotmail because these companies are disruptive - they blow up existing markets and create big new money-making opportunities.

Fast-forward a decade and Jurvetson is making dramatically different bets. He's funding startups in electronics, nanotechnology, clean technology and life sciences that borrow techniques from biology to obtain more precise control over matter.
