In this unique interview Jennifer shares her experience  confronting an angry Steve Jobs and being a key part of the successful Macintosh launch. Today, she heads up Jennifer Jones & Partners, a premier Silicon Valley firm providing marketing advice and communications to tech and healthcare venture capital and private equity firms.
