He's spent the last 30 years in the PC business, and some of Silicon Valley's best and brightest bend his ear frequently. Robert sorts through their tidbits and reports on it through his columns in major magazines and newspapers as well as his documentaries and books. As a tech insider, he wrote the famous "Notes from the Field" column for InfoWorld from 1987-1995. His work frequently appears in the New York Times, Newsweek, Forbes, Upside, Success, and Worth. His first book, "Accidental Empires: How the Boys of Silicon Valley Make Their Millions, Battle Foreign Competition, and Still Can't Get a Date," is a best-seller. His PBS documentaries have aired in more than 60 countries. In today's episode, he discusses his latest book, "The Decline and Fall of IBM."

CONTENT is QUEEN* ... AUDIENCE is KING*
When we think about investors, we usually think about a room full of guys with money to throw around. We think about the hard ass pitch sessions in which some men (usually from Silicon Valley or Silicon Alley) telling you why you're not ready for investment and frowning because you've wasted their time. But the landscape is changing. Yes the pitch meetings are still intense, but more women are entering the picture.
Today, my guest and I discuss what it takes to become an investor, the kind of details they look for, and how the landscape is changing to include women. We'll talk about what you, as an investor should be looking for and introduce Pipeline Fellowship, founded my Natalia Oberti Noguera.
