Bill Magill, Interpreneurship
Bill founded the Interprize Group in 2013. A reformed Silicon Valley venture investor, Bill is now living simply and richly in Provence, France. He is fascinated with the notions of self-realization and how we flourish; of personal worth as opposed to acquired wealth.
The Interprize Program is modeled on Bill’s many years of experience supporting young companies on 3 continents, first as a Wall Street analyst and venture capitalist, and now directing start-up activity at the INSEAD business school, where he is a professor of entrepreneurship. This is coupled with emerging concepts of positive psychology and self-realization that Bill fell in love with initially through studies at the Core Strengths Coaching program at San Francisco State University.
Bill has pursued numerous interpreneurial activities since abandoning the high-flying lifestyle of his core career. In addition to founding the Interprize Group, his first book – Postcards from a Runaway – was published in 2014 and a second album of original music – Last Night at the Ha Ra – was released in 2013. New works of writing and music are under development and published at his personal website here.
