[12:50 PM] Guy Kawasaki Interviewed On CNBC

Guy Kawasaki, former Chief Evangelist for Apple Computer, and current Chairman and CEO of, was interviewed on CNBC's Power Lunch program today. Mr. Kawasaki, whose company just announced it had secured US$12 million in financing, was being interviewed about the state of and Internet startups in general. helps put financing together for startups, serving as a bridge between the companies and financiers. Mr. Kawasaki was very upbeat about the state of the Internet and the future of related startups. This is not surprising coming from the man that many cite for successfully hyping the Mac during its infancy. For those keeping score, the interview was very short, though positive in nature.

The Mac Observer Spin: This is obviously not a Mac specific story, but so many Mac users have such fond memories and thoughts for Mr. Kawasaki, that we felt it would interest many Observers. Also, it is a symbol of just how much credibility Mr. Kawasaki built up during his long tenure at Apple that he should find himself in the limelight as Chairman and CEO of a relatively small startup himself. This is not to short his accomplishments at, which include having found US$60 million dollars in funding for 20 different startups in the last year, in the least.
