3/2/2021

#20 Rennick Palley: Founder of Stratos Technologies on Incentive Structures in Crypto

2/23/2021
“If there's one innovation in crypto, it's incentive structures that actually drive people to do things that benefit the whole. That is so huge.

#17 Andrew Dumont: Adventures in Business and Investing

2/2/2021
“When you’re first starting a fund, you're going to spend your first five years, realistically, actively raising money from LPs—and that is your primary role. It is not interfacing with founders and helping entrepreneurs; that's a small piece. I think it's important that people realize: if you just want to work with entrepreneurs all day, join an existing fund.” – Andrew Dumont Andrew Dumont (@andrewdumont) is a CEO in Residence at Tiny Capital and the Founder of Curious Capital.

“I strongly believe that we are all born explorers. In the sense that when you're one year old you learn how to walk, you walk out of the house, and you start to wonder what's hidden between yourself and the horizon. And soon you will start to wonder, what's even beyond your horizon? So this spirit of exploration, that's something we all have. I kept it more than most people, but it never goes away. We all have it to a certain degree. Being an explorer is not something you begin being, but...
