Social entrepreneurship, Nuralink, Reddit, and my health science N=1 experiment this past spring

This week’s episode of Ventures explores entrepreneurial efforts to help the poorest of the poor globally. There is a lot to learn and digest here, and I’m excited to share this important conversation. (Also, a few thoughts on Nuralink, my Reddit post from last week, and my final writeup of the Whoop/AppleWatch/OuraRing N=1 experiment).

Global impact investing, social entrepreneurship, and Global Brigades :: with Steve Atamian and Brian Howe

In this episode of Ventures we explore the world of impact investing & social entrepreneurship to help the poorest of the poor around the globe. We hear and discuss the founding story of Global Brigades, the world’s largest student-led movement for global health (approximately one in five medical students today have gone on a Brigade). We also hear the launch announcement of Eskala, a for-profit company with an ambitious (and believable) 20-year plan to help end poverty for 18 million people.
