about this episode
In the studio today is Tristan Walker, Founder & CEO of Walker & Company Brands, a startup dynamo creating health & beauty products specifically for people of color. Tristan dazzles Jason with his Bevel razor, as well as with stories from his entrepreneurial journey: from growing up in Queens, to biz dev at Foursquare, to being an E.I.R. at Andreessen Horowitz, to now crushing it as a founder. It’s a fascinating discussion on the enormous potential of the health & beauty market, the role of African-American culture in U.S. & global technology, applying New York hustle to Silicon Valley, celebrity investors, gaining perspective on what money represents, Tristan’s work at CODE2040 expanding opportunities in tech for Black and Latino/a students, and how converting influential consumers into the influencers themselves is smart business.
