(Transcript) Philippe Laffont, Bill Gurley, Jeff Sine Panel // 2013

Digging through my archives and wanted to share another Philippe Laffont transcript, this time of a panel with Benchmark’s Bill Gurley and Raine Group’s Jeff Sine. This is a rather unique panel, because while all three panelists are in tech, one focuses on early stage venture (Bill), one focuses on public markets (Philippe), and oneContinue reading “(Transcript) Philippe Laffont, Bill Gurley, Jeff Sine Panel // 2013”

(Transcript) Philippe Laffont of Coatue

Since I first learned of hedge funds, I’ve been fascinated by Julian Robertson and the Tiger Cubs. Of those, one of the most well known is Coatue Management. Coatue famously is very private, but with Philippe sending out his first Tweet (not a comment), I figured it would be a good time to resurface thisContinue reading “(Transcript) Philippe Laffont of Coatue”

Prompt: What is a non-obvious trend that will see massive growth in the next 5 years?

(Transcript) Peter Kaufman Q&A at the Redlands Forum

If you’ve visited my compilations page, you’ll know that Peter Kaufman was one of the people responsible for my compilations. He encouraged me to take copious notes, organize them, and write them up. He doesn’t write/speak publicly often, but when he does, you’d be wise to listen. For those who don’t know him, Peter isContinue reading “(Transcript) Peter Kaufman Q&A at the Redlands Forum”

(Transcript) Start: The Love Principle in Investing // Shervin Pishevar

Over the weekend, I came across Shervin Pishevar’s new podcast, Start. Although episode 1 is short (only 4 minutes) it is packed with wisdom, and a great introduction to Shervin’s investing and life philosophy. You can listen to the full podcast episode here. *Transcribed 7/6/2020. Any mistakes should be attributed to me. Many times, IContinue reading “(Transcript) Start: The Love Principle in Investing // Shervin Pishevar”

You can find the whole presentation here. *Transcribed a long long time ago. Any mistakes shouldContinue reading “(Transcript+Slides) Overcoming Human Limitations Through Emerging Technologies // Arielle Zuckerberg”

(Transcript) Steve Jurvetson 2020 Commencement Speech // Saint Mark’s School

Over the years, I’ve found that commencement speeches are, word for word, some of the most wisdom-dense content one can consume. There is no shortage of legendary speeches – David Foster Wallace at Kenyon, Peter Thiel at Hamilton, Steve Jobs at Stanford, Elon Musk at Cal-Tech, Paul Tudor Jones at Buckley School – just toContinue reading “(Transcript) Steve Jurvetson 2020 Commencement Speech // Saint Mark’s School”

(Transcript) Electricity as Medicine – Renee Ryan // Cala Health

Ever since I befriended the scientist who developed the cochlear implant and was an early developer of remote neuromuscular stimulators, I’ve been fascinated by neuromodulation. While I was looking at minimally invasive procedures, non-invasive methods didn’t even cross my mind. While non-invasive methods are focused on assuage, they do not cure. Even so, I wasContinue reading “(Transcript) Electricity as Medicine – Renee Ryan // Cala Health”
