You head over to the elevator bank, push the “Up” button, and step through the doors of a waiting elevator car. Just as the doors begin to close, you hear a voice shout out, “Hold the door, please.” You swing your notepad between the closing doors and, as they bounce back, through the door bounds a 40-something man who just happens to be one of the country’s top Venture Capitalists.
