Why SpaceRyde Uses Balloons To Launch Rockets

John Coogan
I had a great time talking with Sohrab about SpaceRyde. I really hope this succeeds! It’s such a crazy approach, but he’s built an incredible team and has a truly solid plan. If you’re interesting in working for SpaceRyde, just visit: https://www.spaceryde.com/careers You can join my community by visiting http://www.johncoogan.com 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 10 rounds of venture capital totaling over $100m in 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.
