How Discord Rewrote the Social Media Playbook

John Coogan
Join my community at http://JohnCoogan.com (enter your email) I use Discord everyday and thought it would be interesting to talk through the company’s history and why I think Jason Citron is such an awesome entrepreneur. Hope you like it!

I've been an entrepreneur for nearly a decade across multiple companies. I've done a lot of work in silicon valley, so that's mostly what I talk about. I've raised over 10 rounds of venture capital totaling over $100m in total funding. I work mostly in tech-enabled consumer packaged goods, meaning I use software to make the best products possible and then deliver them to the widest possible audience. I'm a big fan of machine learning, python programming, and motion graphics.
