Theranos: Valley of Hype, The Culture that built Elizabeth Holmes: Sneak Peek


Watch Yahoo Finance’s documentary on Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes: ‘Valley of Hype’ on August 30, 2021.
Elizabeth Holmes became the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire as CEO of her biotech startup, Theranos. The former Silicon Valley darling now faces criminal trial and 20 years in prison over the Justice Department’s charges that she used the once-hyped blood testing company to defraud investors.
Yahoo Finance is turning the page on Theranos, examining arguments to be raised in Holmes’ defense and the culture that fueled her rise and fall. Interviews with a Theranos board member and employee who have never spoken out, as well as experts on Silicon Valley, raise the possibility that Holmes, rather than being a villain, is a victim of a Silicon Valley ethos that values a perfect pitch over proven results.

Some of these old rich investors were dumb, she was 19 YEAR OLD WITH NO COLLEGE DEGREE and pitching a device that cannot be made. I do more research when buying a dishwasher.

If she had been a mathematician, she must’ve been famous for the work in Lie theory…

The U.S. doesn't want the EU currency and a strong Europe, so it doesn't want Russia to join the EU, asking it not to join the single currency and then withdrawing from the EU.

If the EU were to join Russia, it would be the greatest superpower of all time.

I cant believe they are still talking about this Theranos lady lol. Aug 16 2021. Her machine is probably some garbage she buy'd from a garbage man and painted it a shiny color sold it to the ruling elite lol. I wonder what other medical device will she make.
