RIP – Rajeev Motwani, Google founder’s professor and early investor, dies

This is worth a separate mention.  While Sergey and Larry certainly should get their due recognition for Google, the fact is, it’s often the people behind the entrepreneurs that really “make or break” the startup.  Such is the life of Silicon Valley startups – your VC is equally critical to your success – hence the need to find the very best.

With out Motwani’s influence would Google have been as successful?  I shudder to think life without Google – it’s been that powerful and transformative in our generation.
