Our Guest:
Garry Tan is an entrepreneur and venture capitalist, who also happens to be Alexis’ co-founder at Initialized Capital. Ranked #21 on Forbes’ Midas List of top global venture capitalists, Garry, alongside Alexis, manages a team of eight investing partners with over $500M in assets under management. He previously co-founded Posterous, which was acquired by Twitter, served as one of the founding members of the engineering team for Palantir’s quant finance analysis platform, and served as a partner at Y Combinator, where he invested in and directly worked with more than 700 companies over the course of five years. Garry sits down with Alexis at Initialized Capital’s San Francisco HQ to discuss writing your own playbook as a parent, ‘high five fist bump big hug’ rituals with his son and his favorite morning routine with his sons, eggs in a basket.
