Each month, Joint Venture profiles a member of our board or other project leader from the Silicon Valley region. We feature them here on our website and in our monthly newsletter, Valley Vision. (Some of these leaders have moved on to different roles in the community since their profile first appeared.) We hope you enjoy meeting the people behind the headlines and learning more about them.
