The new documentary "Something Ventured" tells the story of the early, visionary venture capitalists who took chances on technology companies like Intel, Apple and Genentech -- and helped make Silicon Valley the center of innovation that it is today. We talk to the directors of the film, which is showing this week as part of the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Dan Geller, producer and director of "Something Ventured"
