    Magdalena Ye?il

    Magdalena Ye?il - Investor, Entrepreneur, Author

    Nov 28, 2018

    Pioneering entrepreneur and investor Magdalena Ye?il came to the United States in 1976 with two suitcases and $43, blind to the challenges she would face as a woman and immigrant in Silicon Valley. Today, she is best known as the first investor and a founding board member of Salesforce, the now-multibillion dollar company that ushered in the era of cloud-based computing. Ye?il is a former general partner at U.S. Venture Partners, where she oversaw investments in more than 30 early-stage companies and served on the boards of many. A technology pioneer, Ye?il founded three of the first companies dedicated to commercializing internet access, e-commerce infrastructure and electronic payments. Ye?il was interviewed on stage by a Harker business & entrepreneurship student.

    Desolate Angel

    Dennis McNally — Jack Kerouac, The Beat Generation and America

    Dennis McNally is an author, historian, music publicist, and one of the finest cultural historians of our time. His landmark work, “Desolate Angel: Jack Kerouac, the Beat Generation, and America,” launched him, as a Ph.D. student, into a lifelong engagement with the history of American cultural freedom.

    As a result of “Desolate Angel,” McNally was invited by Jerry Garcia to be the Grateful Dead’s official historian, becoming the band's publicist in 1984 during the band’s cultural renewal in the ‘80s and ‘90s. McNally went on to publish “A Long Strange Trip: The Inside History of the Grateful Dead,” and “On Highway 61: Music, Race and the Evolution of Cultural Freedom,” bringing him back to his roots as a cultural historian.
