I'm looking into everything, but also enjoy talking to founders involved with marketplaces, mission-driven brands, longevity and biohacking, social impact ventures, and entrepreneurship in developing countries. I love the early stages of companies.
Founders that aren't passionate about what they do. Businesses that aren't actually helping the world.
