I love nostalgia. Just heard from one of our $1K grantees from 2017 following up with the longer tail of launching her project and bringing the curriculum to schools. Also embroidery and LEDS is a great idea!

I was a finalist at @HackTheNorth earlier this year. Hereโ€™s a little behind the scenes of what we made and how we made it: Thank you @DStrachman and @1517fund for motivating us to continue working on this project even after the hackathon was over ๐Ÿ™

After 11 years of working with makers and founders I am excited to say that we wrote our own a lexicon of what we look for in founder characteristics and what it takes to develop them further. I think itโ€™s on ๐Ÿ”ฅ Sneak peak: my favorite is Friday Night Dyson Sphere!

Led our first ESG company (B2B Saas) deal! Thrilled with their mission, the foundersโ€™ ability to build, and the pilot customers are stoked. I could use a couple coinvestors who are excited and ready to invest in preseed here (<$2M raise). Comment or DM!

New episode: #88 - DANIELLE STRACHMAN Super insightful conversation with @DStrachman of @1517fund . Danielle previously helped lead @thielfellowship from day 1. I've long been in awe of the Thiel Fellowship's success. Danielle explains how they did it:

Got a wacky idea for @1517fund . Over the winter break encourage teens to build their own Rube Goldberg machine with common objects. In late July we would fly teams out to a summit to showcase their builds โ€” kinda @HackTheNorth style without winners. Letโ€™s make this great! Ideas?

1/ ๐ŸŸฃ๐ŸฎPurple Cow #25 :College isn't worth it & @dstrachman invests in founders who agree. She left the @thielfellowship to assemble a team of investors that's turning university credentialism on its head. Learn how @1517fund is landing decacorn deals from college dropouts ๐Ÿ‘‡
