Sarah Lacy Biography

Sarah Lacy knows great entrepreneurs. After more than a decade covering business in Silicon Valley, Lacy decided to follow the flow of capital into the developing world. She bootstrapped a two-year, 40-week journey through the Middle East, South America, Africa, India, China, and Southeast Asia looking for the best entrepreneurs Silicon Valley had never heard of. The result is her second book, Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky: How the Top 1% of Entrepreneurs Profit from Global Chaos, which Fortune called "an outstanding piece of journalism" (Wiley, February 2011).

Lacy is well known in tech hot spots around the world for finding great entrepreneurs before most other reporters or venture capitalists do. She is the founder and editor-in-chief of the newly launched tech news site PandoDaily.com. Previously, she was the senior editor at TechCrunch.com, the largest blog on tech entrepreneurship in the world. She is also the author of the critically acclaimed Once You're Lucky, Twice You're Good: The Rebirth of Silicon Valley and the Rise of Web 2.0 (Gotham Books, May 2008). Called the definitive book of the Web 2.0 movement, Once You're Lucky tells the story of how Web 2.0 was born through the eyes of the founders of companies like Facebook, Twitter, Slide, Digg, LinkedIn, and others.

Before that, Lacy was a staff writer for Businessweek and the founding co-host of Yahoo! Finance's daily show "TechTicker." Lacy is a regular guest on NBC's Press:Here and various TV and radio outlets in the United States and around the world.

She is a sought-after speaker on the topic of entrepreneurship, delivering keynotes throughout the United States and in London, Paris, South Africa, Israel, and Indonesia. Her books are taught in several entrepreneurship courses in colleges and universities around the world.
