More than 30 years ago as a Stanford graduate student, Andreas "Andy" Bechtolsheim designed a simple but powerful computer workstation that would help define the modern technology era and launch Sun Microsystems. He's since founded three more startups, including cloud-networking company Arista Networks, where he is now chairman. His investing foresight is legendary. Not only was he the first major backer for Google, but he's also been an early-stage investor in VMware, Brocade and others. Bechtolsheim discusses the process of innovation and describe its importance to Silicon Valley.
