Video interview with Bill Tai, General Partner Charles River Ventures @Future of Money & Technology Summit   Bill is as comfortable on a kiteboard in the Pacific Ocean as he is in the office. As a sponsored athlete and Olympic Ambassador for the IKA (Int’l Kitesurfing Association), he is part of the campaign to put Kiteboarding into the 2016 Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro. Bill has had as much success on the water (or snow) as he has had as an investor. A CRV partner since 2002 and startup investor since 1991, he’s helped a number of portfolio companies reach successful exits. Prior to joining CRV, Bill had business successes as Executive Chairman of IPInfusion, Founding Chairman & CEO of iAsiaWorks, and Founding President of Tradebeam. His greatest areas of interest are cloud / web services, mobile applications and enabling technologies.  Bill is also co-creator of the MaiTai Kite Camp, where entrepreneurs, innovators and athletes try to master the complex sport of kiting. He holds an MBA from Harvard Graduate School of Business, and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois.  You can find Bill on Twitter @KiteVC
