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:
Steve and his team at Global Brigades have approached helping communities around the world in an extremely smart and humble way. Today, about one in five medical students have attended a Brigade, and the positive impact of the organization continues to grow.
If you missed the demo last Friday, here is the full demo (starts about 49min in) and here is a 7min highlight reel. Long story short, Elon & co. have developed an implantable device that puts 1024 small electrodes into the brain to read/write electrical signals. The implications could be significant (from playing video games with your mind, to curing blindness, to storing memories in the cloud, to having a full-on Digital Tertiary Layer)
Many thanks to those of you who chimed in on my post last week in /r/Entrepreneur, which turned into a bit of an AMA. The comments/DMs were super encouraging. I’m glad I was able to help share some stories/lessons learned that will hopefully be helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions!
Finally, for those curious, I finished the second and final part of this write up regarding an N=1 experiment I did this past spring:
Let me know if you have any additional questions :)
Have a great rest of your week !
