This week we had on Sakib Jamal (@skbjml) of Crossbeam.

Crossbeam is an early-stage fund that invests in new internet economies, financial services, and novel asset classes. Sakib does a little bit of everything for Crossbeam, and outside of work he somehow finds time to operate The Capsule, which shares South Asian news, professional development content, and entertainment in 3-minute emails.

In this talk, we discuss:

  • the shifting balance of power away from major platforms
  • the lack of capital powering the creator economy
  • running side experiments to build empathy and optionality
