His Harvard Business Review cover story, Why the Lean Startup Changes Everything, explained how companies could use the Lean Startup to implement innovation at speed.

(MIPS, Zilog, Rocket Science, SuperMac, Convergent Technologies, Ardent, ESL) Steve's last company was E.piphany, an enterprise software company.

Steve is a past board member of California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV), Audubon California, Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) and Startup Weekend. He served as a governors appointee to the California Coastal Commission.
