The ‘Why’ keeps Silicon Valley

As Britain gathered to #WalkTogether in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings in London, U.S. Ambassador Matthew Barzun convened a cohort of leading young entrepreneurs in the UK to a morning discussion.

In the splendor of the Winfield House Gold Room, Ambassador Barzun quipped that the alliance of youthful disrupters, innovators and founders had gathered to a morning session of therapy. Serendipitously, as special guest speaker Julie Hanna (U.S. Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship (PAGE) and Executive-Chair, Kiva) took to the floor,what unfolded was an unexpected, open and cathartic tête-à-tête on the personal, emotional and occasional loneliness that shadows the meandering journey of the entrepreneur.
