William Janeway teaches in the Princeton University Economics Department and serves on the Economics Faculty of Cambridge University, but he’s no cloistered academic. Janeway has been an active venture-capital investor for more than 40 years, building and leading the Warburg Pincus Technology Investment team, which provided financial backing to a series of companies making critical contributions to the Internet economy, including BEA Systems; Veritas Software; and, more recently, Nuance Communications, the speech-recognition company. Founder of the Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance and author of Doing Capitalism in the Innovation Economy, Janeway has been heralded for his accessible approach to the dynamics of the Innovation Economy’s “Three Player Game” (the state, private entrepreneurial innovation, and financial capitalism) and for his innovative theory on the role of asset bubbles in financing technological innovation. Presented as part of the Town Hall Civics series with University Book Store. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
