Draper, legendary Silicon Valley venture
capitalist founded Draper University
in 2012 with a vision and belief that
in order to change the world we have
to change education. Draper University
aims to teach entrepreneurship globally
in an entirely new way. Through hands
on training, an innovative curriculum
and thought leadership Tim Draper brings

founders, executives and investors all
under one roof. Tim Draper has deep
roots in entrepreneurship and venture
capital with a rich background that

1964, I began my studies on gold and collectibles
via my Uncle, who was a high-end antique
dealer in New York. My father was a real
estate developer in Kingston, New York.
With his contacts in local commercial banking,
I began my banking career at 15. I focused
my college education on business finance,
first at Fairleigh Dickenson University
in Teaneck, New Jersey. After a semester
in England at Wroxton College I transferred
to the University of Arizona in Tucson.
I remained in commercial banking until 1986
when I shifted to investment banking with
Larson Lehman/American Express and became
a stock broker. Initially I focused my attentions
on the government bond market, learning
the nuances of debt and interest rate moves
on bond maturities. In that capacity, I
stumbled across non-dollar denominated bonds
and added the currency dimension. This led
to the discovery of currency life cycle
patterns and a deep understanding of the
impact of those life cycles on all socioeconomic
levels and asset classes. My mission is
to translate financial noise into understandable
language and enable educated, independent
choices. All my work is fact and evidence
based and I share these tools openly. I
believe strongly that we need to be as independent
as possible and at the same time, we need
to come together in community to survive
and thrive through the hyperinflation I
see in the near future.
