Abstract:

"It might seem surprising to find the term "venture capitalist" linked to the work of John McArthur, a longtime academic and the dean of the Harvard Business School from 1980 to 1995. Yet, much like a venture capitalist, McArthur astutely invested in other people's ideas - perhaps most significantly when their ideas challenged tradition and accepted practice. The Intellectual Venture Capitalist celebrates McArthur's enormous contribution to the Harvard Business School, with essays from many of the School's most renowned professors, who pay tribute to his continuing influence on their careers and the work of the School."--Jacket.
