  • Great talk from a very accomplished entrepreneur! What incredible experience to have been part of Twitter, LinkedIn, AND Facebook, that’s just insane. What entrepreneur wouldn’t want to have Josh as a VC and work with him for many years?!

    Thanks for sharing this video, and all the best going forward with the LAUNCH incubator.
