Lately I've been trying to learn as much as possible about Sequoia Capital, which is the venture capital firm that backed Apple in the 1980s; Google in the 1990s, and Dropbox, Airbnb, etc. today.
Sequoia's partners don't usually talk much -- and many of you will know that such projects get me into overdrive in a hurry. Here's the Forbes magazine cover story that resulted. Lots of anecdotes, stats and perspectives that haven't ever appeared in print before.
Speaking of overdrive, the photo shows Sequoia's partners approximating a Formula One style pit stop. Do these guys know how to build billion-dollar companies? You betcha. Can they change your tires in six seconds? Um, probably not. But it was great of them to try.
