Heidi Roizen is the managing director of Mobius Venture Capital and chairman-elect of the National Venture Capital Association. And since she’s an entrepreneur and also a true Silicon Valley native, she has a unique perspective on the pc revolution. She has gotten to know all the tech gurus and celebrities before they became famous. She met with PodTech Founder and CEO John Furrier at her home in Atherton, Calif. In a conversation from her private office, with her dogs walking around in the background, she discusses Mobius, her thoughts on raising her own venture fund, women in technology today and her experiences as an entrepreneur.

John’s Notes: I got a tour of Heidi’s house, too. She has a killer entertainment area that includes a full-on stage and an ecast jukebox. It gives a great sense of what’s going on in Silicon Valley these days, and it was a great setting to ask questions about the current investment climate: Is it a boom? Are VCs and others here repeating old mistakes? We also talked a little bit about Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda, his 50th birthday party and their philanthropy. You won’t hear the whole conversation, out of respect for certain individuals’ privacy, but you will get a sense of the tech community’s interconnectedness.
