Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google and Executive Chairman at Alphabet, is one of the most influential technology executives in the world. At Village Global, we are honored to have him among the small group of LP luminaries whose financial capital and engagement power our network of founders.

In September, we invited 150+ world-class entrepreneurs, investors, operators, and executives in our network to the heart of San Francisco in order to experience a VIP edition of Lessons From Luminaries. There, Village founders, collaborators, and constituents heard an in-depth conversation with Eric and Tyler Cowen, the renowned economist and author of multiple bestselling books, including “The Great Stagnation.”

Eric spoke eloquently and candidly about scaling through systems, praise as an underrated management strategy, the value of luck, the future of sensors, overcoming failure and Google’s most important innovation: their hiring practices. After the fireside chat, both Eric and Tyler stayed for two private roundtable conversations with Village founders, Network Leaders, and other influential valley veterans to discuss the future of the internet, globalization, politics, and more.
