The following video is part of our nationally syndicated Motley Fool Money radio show, in which host Chris Hill and advisors Ron Gross, James Early, and Seth Jayson discuss the week's business and investing news. This week's guest is Paul Holland, venture capitalist and co-executive producer of SomethingVentured, a documentary film about the start of the venture capital movement. In this audio clip he profiles a few of the rising young tech companies. He also shares some highlights from the film, including early VC investments that didn't go well, the common thread among early VC investors, and why Apple is the best VC investment ever.
