Here's the video of Peter Thiel, founder of Clarium Capital and Founders Fund. Thiel, well known as the first investor in Facebook, took the stage at the first-ever VentureShift, delivering yet another one of his thought-provoking keynote speeches.

"The contrarian thing is not to be with the crowd, or fashionably against the crowd, but to think,” said Thiel. 

For a good overview of Thiel's keynote, read Faith Merino's "Peter Thiel: Don't think of companies as statistics."
