Chamath Palihapitiya is a beast. He’s most notably a key member of the executive team that brought Facebook over the 1B user mark. More recently, he’s been running The Social+Capital Partnership and acting as part-owner and board member for the Golden State Warriors (you know, the NBA team with six losses after 62 games).
He also brings the heat anytime he speaks publicly, and was by far my favorite speaker at this year’s LAUNCH Festival. Topics covered include sports, politics, morality, gambling, tech, and beyond…but Chamath’s comments on diversity in tech and the dusty, overly white hierarchy of venture capital steal the show.
He’s an influencer worth following and definitely one that will get you thinking about the big things.
