The Business of Yale

Join us for another installment of the YCSF Speaker Series. Former Yale Trustee Donna Dubinsky will discuss the business of Yale.

Were you ever curious about how Yale is run? How is it governed? Where do its resources come from, and what does it spend them on? Why is it so darn expensive? Donna Dubinsky served on the board of Yale for 12 years, with the last two years as senior trustee, and will share with us some of the knowledge she gained about the workings of Yale.

Donna Dubinsky is CEO, board chair, and cofounder of Numenta, Inc., a software company creating fundamental technology designed to lead the coming era of machine intelligence. After graduating from Yale and earning an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, she worked at Apple Computer and then as a founder of Claris Corporation. In 1992 she joined Jeff Hawkins at Palm Computing, serving as president and chief executive officer. The handheld computer, the PalmPilot, introduced four years later, became the fastest-selling computer and consumer electronics product in history at the time. In 1998 Ms. Dubinsky and Mr. Hawkins founded Handspring, Inc., creator of the Treo Smartphone, which set the standard for next-generation phones. Handspring merged in 2003 with Palm, where Ms. Dubinsky served as a director until early 2009. She and Mr. Hawkins founded Numenta in 2005. At Yale she served as a member of the University Council. Ms. Dubinsky was named successor trustee in 2006, and senior trustee in 2016. She served as senior trustee until earlier this year.
