Court Coursey and I spoke during the week of the Milken Conference in Los Angeles, an event that brings around some the biggest name in corporate giving from around the world. Amazingly $20 Trillion dollars in wealth represented at the conference. Almost 1/4 of the world's wealth was at the conference. Court calls these types of conferences "aggregators" where you can book 6 months of meetings into one week. He held 54 meetings in a 4 day period.

Decades later he still has that entrepreneurial fire, and has built a number of successful companies over the past 20 years. Court is now managing partner of TomorrowVentures, LLC, a Palo Alto-based investment firm that provides capital and counsel to help build successful businesses. He works closely with Erich Schmidt Executive Chairman of Alphabet, Inc (Google) in the fund.
