Doug Menuez was an eyewitness to history with unprecedented insider access to document Steve Jobs and the greatest innovators of the digital revolution. Menuez shares rare images from his new photography book “Fearless Genius” and stories of sacrifice, failure and the struggle to invent the impossible. Ultimately,  the refusual to give up on their dreams led to the extraordinary technology that changed our world forever. 

Of particular relevance to today’s entrepreneurs, Menuez brings observations and insights from his time inside over 70 companies, many of them startups that failed. His photographs reveal the passion, idealism and crazy dedication that fueled the scalable, breakthrough innovations that created millions of jobs worldwide and untold wealth. Menuez also discusses the challenges innovators face today with shortages of engineers and the lack of long-term funding for hard science. 

Today we see a new wave of amazing technology coming - sensors, 3D printing, genomics, nanotech and more, plus the possibility of the singularity -  if anything is possible in the future, how can we design the best possible future?

Ultimately, "Fearless Genius" is not about technology but what you'd be willing to give up to accomplish your dreams. 

 

HEXAGON 2015, LAS VEGAS

“It was an absolute pleasure having you, and I heard excellent feedback about your talk. One long term entrepreneur said your talk was such an inspiration that it had given him the chills!”

-Hans Hartman, Chair, Mobile Photo Connect conference

“I am so thankful you were part of the event. What a great privilege to have you there. Your talk was simply wonderful and insightful. Many people mentioned you were a highlight of the event. And for me as well.”

- Kate Kubiak, Balderton Capital, London

“Wow! What a day! You made the entire thing so incredibly special. The buzz tonight was fantastic. Thanks for everything you did to make it such a great opening of the exhibition.”

- John Hollar, Director/CEO Computer History Museum

“ “Fearless Genius” by Doug Menuez is the most unique insight on Steve Jobs never previously revealed. Absolutely fascinating photos and narrative as Steve Jobs gave Doug Menuez permission to sit in on all meetings and follow him around for 3 years at NeXT. The legend comes alive in this book!”  

- John Sculley, former CEO, Apple Computer
