Idealog—in the ideas business

Sean Simpson at the 2010 TechNZ Innovation Forum

Last week, 380 chief executives and leaders of New Zealand's leading R&D firms assmebled to compare notes and listen to legendary venture capitalist Vinod Khosla. The TechNZ Innovation Forum invited Idealog to capture the key note speakers, grab interviews with the stars and report on the vibe. First up, Sean Simpson, founder of Lanzatech—one of the few companies around the world that has secured investment from Vinod Khosla. Lanzatech extracts gases from smokestacks and turns it into biofuel. We ask Sean how he got Vinod to listen.
