Peter Thiel and Ajay Royan Launch $1B Venture Growth Fund Mithril Capital Management: UPDATED -peHUB
Fred T stashed this in Failing Up
He talks a good game:
"Solving an intractable problem may require a decade of work, but a lifetime of vision,” said Peter Thiel, Mithril’s co-founder and chairman of the investment committee. “Mithril will play a patient, focused, and pivotal role in helping the world’s most outstanding creative minds and build lasting companies that change the world.”
"A decade of work, a lifetime of vision" sounds like the slogan for the game Othello.
So... Peter Thiel is teaching a Stanford class while funding 20 kids to NOT go to college, and running a hedge fund called Clarium and a seed fund called Founders Fund, and now he's adding a venture capital growth fund to disrupt energy, aging, and education?
Is there anything this guy ISN'T doing?
How about Utopian Floating Cities?
What?! He's doing that too??? http://betabeat.com/2012/06/peter-thiels-interesting-new-investment/
