Marc's lecture will encompass his personal story / journey as a serial technology entrepreneur - the "war stories" and what he learned from them. The mistakes he made and the things he got right. The audience will hear from someone who has tried, failed and had tremendous success in commercializing technology - the "blood, toil, sweat, tears and triumphs" of commercializing technology, so to speak.
