What is ETL?
The DFJ Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Seminar (ETL) is a weekly seminar series on entrepreneurship, co-sponsored by the venture capital firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson, BASES (a student entrepreneurship group), and the Stanford Technology Ventures Program.
The seminar is free and open to public. It also functions as a class called Management Science and Engineering 472.
What is the time and location for ETL?
ETL takes place every Wednesday 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM in NVIDIA Auditorium in the Huang Engineering Center, Stanford University. Click here for directions to NVIDIA Auditorium.
How can I view the sessions later?
Each quarter, the sessions are available to watch online via the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD). Also, the sessions are available at E-Corner to watch as well
Once the quarter is complete, the files are removed from the server. For a fee, it is possible to request a tape of the event from SCPD directly.
Can I register to receive credit for this class?
Yes. If you are a Stanford student, you can take the class for one credit. Please read the grading policy under grading info. If you want to attend the lectures but do not wish to receive academic credit, you may simply audit it. GSB students can sign up for the class through AXESS - there is no need to go through the GSB sign-up procedure for this course.
How do I nominate someone for this series?
Speakers are nominated and voted on each quarter by faculty and students within the Stanford Technology Ventures Program and the Business Association for Stanford Engineering Students (BASES). Speakers usually fit one of the following criteria:
- a founder or executive in a technology company that has achieved a certain level of success
- a founder or executive in an early stage high technology startup
- a venture capitalist who has invested in a high technology startup
- an author or philanthropist whose efforts are focused on high technology entrepreneurship
Most importantly, our goal is to identify speakers who are reflective practitioners and will serve as role models to the students in the engineering community. If you have a speaker to nominate, please contact a Faculty Sponsor or BASES representative.
