About this event
Join Alan Patricof, the Grandfather & Pioneer of Venture Capital, in conversation with John Borthwick, CEO of Betaworks, for an AMA uncovering the lessons learned throughout Alan's robust, fruitful personal life & career, from investing early in Apple to founding New York Magazine to running the New York marathon at age 87.

Now on his "Third Act," Primetime Partners, for the trillion-dollar aging sector, Alan plans to spend the next twenty-seven years (he says he will live until 114!) building the fund into a business with as much staying power as Apax or Greycroft. Rarely does an individual's career span the lifetime of an entire industry, & this conversation will dive into Alan's time in venture capital, from the early days on Wall Street to now, & what it means to live life with no red lights.
