On Deck Alums Hiring

Email or Twitter DM me names of great people for these roles and I’ll treat you to dinner if they get hired. If you happen to be a young person who isn’t in SF that makes the referral I’ll pay for a domestic flight so you can visit the Bay Area.

  • Love healthcare? Sling Health (YC, seed round led by Kleiner) is hiring a senior software engineer. Sling is building out the technical infrastructure for medical operations and the largest geographically distributed team of remote nurses.

Requests for Startups

I’m a curious generalist so if you are fascinated by what you’re working on I’m sure I’ll enjoy hearing about it. That said, here are a few topics I’ve been thinking about:

  • Reversing or radically improving management of chronic disease. See Virta reversing type 2 diabetes
  • Compression of morbidity
  • Updating media (future of books/knowledge)
  • Collaboration tools (realize Doug Engelbart’s dream of unleashing human potential)
  • Future of publishing and online discourse
  • Childcare / Pediatric care
  • Care of the aging
  • Combat disinformation
  • Prediction
  • Transportation (<4 miles or inter-city)
  • Housing solutions
  • Increasing food accessibility (affordable healthy foods)
  • The “at-risk” model

I always have time for founders.

Requests for Projects

Personal interest—don’t care much about the business potential but would love to see these in the world.

  • Membership-based Library where each member gets a bookcase and X% goes towards funding public libraries. I’d love a place to spend time with curious people that isn’t a bar or a coffeeshop and is open 24/7.
  • Global running club with weekly affordable races in cities around the world. See DSE Runners for inspiration.
