  3. Tim Ferris with Jacqueline Novogratz #512

    “We’re taught that there are bad people and good people, monsters and angels. And yet the truth of the matter is that monsters and angels live in every single one of us. Monsters are our broken parts. They are our petty fears, our insecurities, the grievances that grow.”

    — Jacqueline Novogratz Jacqueline Novogratz (@jnovogratz) is the founder and CEO of Acumen. In 2001, Jacqueline started Acumen with the idea of investing philanthropic patient capital in entrepreneurs seeking to solve the toughest issues of poverty. As a pioneer of impact investing, Acumen and its investments have brought critical services like healthcare, education, and clean energy to hundreds of millions of low-income people.

  4. a16z Podcast | Messaging As the Interface to Everything

    Messaging app WeChat tells us a lot about mobile and business in China. In a recent deep-dive primer on the WeChat phenomenon, a16z partner Connie Chan analyzed WeChat and the notion of app-within-apps, payments as a gateway drug, platforms vs portals, and what happens when utility is more important than being "social". Wired senior writer David Pierce also describes the power of conversational messaging as the main interface, further arguing that “A great messaging app could be to the web browser what the browser was to the internet before it.”

    So what happens when a messaging app essentially becomes an operating system for our lives? What conditions made the mobile, business, and cultural environment in China so ripe for a phenomenon like WeChat? How does voice change everything? And, let’s face it, what are the tradeoffs users (both consumer and business) as well as developers may have to make when one app does in fact rule an entire ecosystem? Connie and David discuss on this episode of the a16z Podcast. Plus what happens to loneliness, work-life balance, and more.

  5. a16z Podcast | Mindsets for Engineering Biology

    Head of the largest bioengineering lab in the world, former chairman of the FDA and one of the few recipients of the National Medals of Science and of Technology and Innovation, Bob Langer’s work has spanned multiple fields and settings and has been applied across numerous fields, from pharmaceutical to chemical, biotechnology to medical device companies. What does it mean to move across disciplines like this, from science to engineering, both in the lab and into the field?

    In this conversation with general partner and head of the a16z bio fund Vijay Pande (with Hanne Tidnam), Langer and Pande share the challenges and opportunities as people move across different disciplines, as well as the changing mindsets for innovation as applied to biotech: first principles, "rational" biology, do no harm, and others.

  6. a16z Podcast | What Comes After the Smartphone

    Technology is a progression of new ideas and new platforms gobbling up the one that came before. In the world of computers we went from mainframes to mini computers to PCs. And then came the mobile phone, which, in the form of the smartphone, has dwarfed them all. But what does that to mobile? When you have already gotten to everybody on earth, what comes along that is 10X the size?

    a16z’s Benedict Evans and Steven Sinofsky offer their thoughts on where technology is today, why the perfection of the current crop of PCs signals the category’s collapse, and what happens after the smartphone.

  7. a16z Podcast | All About Synthetic Biology

    with James J. Collins, Vijay Pande (@vijaypande), and Hanne Tidnam (@omnivorousread)

    The idea of ‘designing biology’ — once science fiction — has over the last 20 years become just… science. In this episode, a16z’s General Partner on the Bio Fund Vijay Pande and Hanne Tidnam talk all about the field of synthetic biology with James J. Collins, Termeer Professor of Bioengineering at MIT.  Collins, whose work in synthetic biology and systems biology pioneered the field, has also launched a number of companies and received numerous awards and honors, including a MacArthur "Genius" Award, an NIH Director’s Pioneer Award, and Sanofi-Institut Pasteur Award.

    This wide-ranging conversation about the birth of synthetic biology covers every thing from the founding story of the discipline to what “engineering and designing biology” really looks like in action — when instead of engineering electrons, you are engineering toggle switches for genes — to the disciplinary differences (and synergies) between how biologists and engineers see the world. What are the engineering and design principles, techniques, or approaches that work best when applied to science? How does building a company in this new space look different, in terms of platforms and products? And how is this new field changing education in scie…
