about this episode

Today’s episode is an awesome two-parter from Launch Festival 2015. Our first guest is Andrew Mason, former Founder/CEO of the fastest growing startup of all-time, Groupon, and current Founder/CEO of Detour. Jason sat down with Andrew to discuss how he reconciles everything that happened at Groupon when he looks back on it now, what lessons he is incorporating from that experience into Detour, why getting yourself in a mess of a situation can lead to breakthrough ideas, how he wants to transform audio tours in to a more social and immersive experience that deepens our ability to experience places, and much more. Next up is a fascinating panel discussion and demonstration on “The Future of Food” with three companies at the forefront of smart and sustainable technology: Bitty Foods (cricket-flour products & edible insects that could cut 18% in carbon emissions), Pantelligent (smart frying pan with mounted sensors), and Beyond Meat (plant-based proteins that taste exactly like meat).
