about this episode

This week Jason sits down with Chamath Palihapitiya, Founder and Managing Partner of The Social+Capital Partnership, at Hack the North, Canada’s Largest International Hackathon at University of Waterloo. Chamath shoots straight from the heart & hip on a number of topics, including the mercenary culture in Silicon Valley, why the best companies don’t come out of incubators, the great opportunities in health care, education, and finance, and why passion is king (hint: you’ll fail if you do anything only for the money).

You guys have chemistry almost as good as Heckle and Jeckle, or Larry and Moe but who cares ! Information and entertainment in one datum filled fire hose ! @kaffegeek
