Join my community at http://JohnCoogan.com (enter your email) Iā€™m a big fan of what Delian is building at Varda. Really cool to see someone go from VC into deep tech like this. You can follow me and Delian on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/johncoogan https://twitter.com/zebulgar KEY SOURCES: Pomp Podcast Interview: https://youtu.be/mgBH0INFquQ Kunal Mehta Interview: https://youtu.be/s0x6-hGCydw Ivan Kirigin Interview: https://youtu.be/Oc9CogVgXN8 ABOUT JOHN COOGAN: I am the co-founder of http://soylent.com and http://lucy.co, both of which were funded by Y Combinator (Summer 2012 and Winter 2018). 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.
