Discussion of current issues and events
And a lively conversation with our featured speaker
Peter Thiel, venture capitalist, hedge fund manager, and co-founder and former CEO of PayPal.
We gather at 7pm on the first Thursday of each month and begin our organized meeting around 7:30.
The featured speaker is normally introduced at about 8. The meeting continues until about 10.
Please note: Junto is not the usual sort of meeting with a long speech followed by Q & A. Invited speakers give a short presentation, and then are challenged to defend their assertions. Discussions are intense, but polite.
