In September, the VEF launched its “Technology Legends” theme for our 2008/09 season. In October, the VEF will continue to learn from local stars who know what it takes to be successful. Morgan Sturdy is truly a legend in the Vancouver tech community. Whether it was hardware or software; public or private; large or small; success or failure: Morgan has seen it. In addition to building and selling Dees Communications; Morgan has served on the board of 23 technology companies ranging from Chair of Hothaus (which sold for a record breaking sum to Broadcom) to Creo (sold to Kodak) to failed dot-com ventures. With Dick Hardt as moderator for our "fireside chat”, he and Morgan will get to the bottom of what it takes to build, run and exit a technology company.
