Interviews

We interview cool startup founders, early operators at ๐Ÿฆ„s, and leading venture capitalists. We may well expand to start interviewing others, too. But, for now, that's our focus.

If you know anyone who you think would be a good interview guest,

.

We allow our interview guests to share their stories and offer advice for the next generation.

Interviews are released via newsletter, podcast, or (sometimes) both.
