"Extraordinary careers are possible outside tracked institutions. " is one of the tag lines for the 1517 fund, which backs extraordinary young founders leading great pursuits in invention, technology companies and enterprises. From $1,000 grants to $250K funded cheques, we chat with the wonderful VC and GP Danielle Strachman about her outlook on education, alternatives in entrepreneurial experience and her time with the Thiel Fellowship.
In particular we touch on:
- The growing monetary and opportunity costs of education and an entrepreneurial education.
- Danielle and Michael Gibson's antipitch playbook tips for landing cheques
- Powerlaws, core lessons for young founders and more!
