The school that Silicon Valley billionaires created
Posted on: May 11th, 2017 by Darren Weaver
Silicon Valley is working on ways to change the way that we drive, eat, live, and now thanks to a new type of school, the way our children learn. The school is called AltSchool, and it’s the brainchild of a former Google executive, Max Ventilla. The school merges traditional education with the type of high-tech learning that you would expect from Silicon Valley. AltSchool has even funded itself like a startup, raising $170 million from investors like Mark Zuckerberg and Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund.

The third co-founder of Apple, Ronald Wayne
Posted on: February 9th, 2017 by Darren Weaver
Ronald Wayne co-founded Apple Computers with Steve Jobs and Wozniak in 1976. Wayne would own a 10% stake in Apple, while Jobs and Wozniak would each get 45% of the company. After just 12 days of being a founder, he sold his shares to Wozniak for $800, and resigned from the company. Today, he lives a quiet life an hour outside of Las Vegas, collecting stamps, writing blogs, and working on his next big idea.
