If you could do a TedTalk on anything what would it be on?
Larry Lopez has been driving innovation for over 25 years. He has worked with start-ups, venture capital funds, institutional investors and government agencies, with a long track record of developing outstanding teams that deliver successful outcomes.
Larry spent 17 years in technology finance with Silicon Valley Bank, before moving to Australia in 2006.
