DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - One of the tech world’s bests-known venture capitalists drew a big crowd Wednesday, but this wasn’t your typical Denver Startup Week event.
Suzanne Cryer, an actress featured in the HBO comedy series Silicon Valley, appeared with show writer Adam Countee to talk about the show’s popularity and its relationship with the real tech world.
Silicon Valley is a hit, especially in the tech scene, because it hilariously skewers the industry and captures its energy at a time when tech and startup culture have become significant, they said.
“Tech has seeped into every aspect of our lives,” said Cryer, who plays deadpan venture capitalist Laurie Bream on the show. “We need to care about tech, and care about what companies and VCs in Silicon Valley are doing because it’s all around us.”
