As an investment guide for founders, innovators, and exceptional leaders— I love seeing other founders succeed.

Again In my post, The top 5 things I wish someone told me before I started investing... I outlined why Feross’s side project Wormhole is the simplest, easiest way to send files anywhere in the world without a login.

I’ll be sure to continue to share relevant updates of the company in the future.
