Clark is considered a serial entrepreneur. In 1982, he founded Silicon Graphics, which became a leading provider of three-dimensional computer graphic applications. First used by architects and designers, Silicon Graphics’ applications were deployed in the entertainment realm, most notably as the basis for the computer-generated characters in Jurassic Park and Terminator 2. Leaving Silicon Graphics in 1994, Clark went on to found Netscape, WebMD, and MyCFO.
