Glenn speaks with industry legend Lee Pillsbury about his career and newest passion, hotel industry technology. Through his investment arm Thayer Ventures he owns pieces of many companies you’ve heard of, such as Hipmunk, Duetto, Nor1, social tables and many more.
First, Glenn talks about technology from another angle, slot machines. Skill based slot machines are here and Glenn gave one a spin (yeah, bad pun). He battled against the classic aliens of Space Invaders and shares why the industry is banking on slot machines that allow users to bring their skill rather than just pray for luck. You guessed it, it’s all about those millennials.
