Just before the holidays we took a trip down to Sand Hill Road, where we filmed this interview on cleantech investing with Draper Fisher Jurvetson’s partners Steve Jurvetson and Raj Atluru. With 11 deals and over $40 million dollars, DFJ was one of the leaders of funding the industry in 2007. We shot the video in the lobby of DFJ; they thankfully cut my bad joke about ultimate frisbie. Thanks to Steve and Raj, who gave us a lot of insights on energy efficiency, waste-to-energy, thin-film solar, synthetic genomics, and the rest of their portfolio — they also made up for my newbie video skills! Check it out, and for coverage of everything cleantech read GigaOM’s Earth2Tech:

  1. OM, KATIE – one word “Terrific”. Best digest I have seen thus far on the subject matter (for the average person) – expectional guests from DFJ. Look forward to more these episodes. Sending around the video link to family and friends.

  2. Their answers seemed so staged, as though they’ve given the same answer 500 times to a different question every time. It felt like the wax museum…I was waiting for them to melt from the bright lights….but it’s really them.

  3. Well summarized – anything green is the new “Super-Demographic” that seniors, baby boomers, young adults and youngsters globally will have more interest in – CleanTech will not lose steam and VC interest even in 2008.

    Watch out for more – unfortunately – man-made natural disasters coming from Asia, especially China, by the end of decade.
