CoFounder Weekly #💯: July 5, 2020

CoFounder Weekly is usually a tweet-powered startup newsletter, but I went camping in Tahoe last week and had no phone service. I heard birds tweet, but I couldn’t understand them.

What’s an article/tweet/idea/story you enjoyed last week?

🎙Introducing…..Business Trip

I’m VERY excited to share the first episode of Business Trip, a podcast about psychedelic entrepreneurship.

Business Trip tells the story of the emerging industry of psychedelics. Each episode features founders, from biotech startups developing novel psychedelic compounds, to clinics and retreats for healing, to software companies building tools to power the ecosystem.

I’m working on this podcast with one of my besties, Matias and Serebrinsky — we’re advocates of the healing powers of psychedelic medicine and we see a bright future ahead for the industry.

The podcast is an opportunity to highlight promising psychedelic companies, to get into the nitty gritty of how to build a company in this field, and also educate ourselves (and our listeners) about psychedelic protocols, science, technologies, history, research, and ethics. And as investors pour millions into the space, we’re interested to know -- how will companies balance healing people but also meet investor returns?

In the first episode, I interview the founder of Mindbloom, and share an audiodiary of my experience participating in ketamine-assisted therapy — the only legally prescribable psychedelic therapy available in the US today.

I could write a longer intro about why psychedelic medicine is effective, fascinating, and gaining momentum, but you’re better off listening to the podcast to learn more about it!

Listen to the first episode here.

Quick observation

Pre-COVID, I thought that the next recession wouldn’t look like a recession, but rather certain industries would be swallowed up by technology.

This seems to be exactly what is happening now due to COVID.

Every retailer is going online, because who wants to try on clothes in a dressing room?

All documents are signed online, because who wants to print and sign and scan from home?

Telehealth is replacing doctor’s visits, because who wants to risk infection at a doctor’s office?

These companies are on a fast tracking to reach their total addressable market. When we’re on the other side of this pandemic, what industries won’t be online?

Underpromise, Overdeliver

CoFounder Weekly #97: June 14, 2020

“I think you're underpromising and overdelivering. Every CFW should promise a breakthrough, an aha moment, a revelation, a new thought, a eureka.” - my dad

CoFounder Weekly is a startup newsletter that promises a breakthrough, aha moment, revelation, new thought, or eureka.
