Join Amos Schwartzfarb, Techstars Austin Managing Director, and Brad Feld, Co-Founder of Techstars and Partner with the Foundry Group, for a discussion and AMA on Brad's newest book, The Entrepreneur's Weekly Nietzsche.
While reading Nietzsche (um, yes) Brad noted that his favorite personality was a “free spirit: An obsessed individual with a vision of the future and the will to make it so, a rebel who creates the future with childlike enthusiasm.” That, thought Brad, sounded a lot like…an entrepreneur.
In todays episode, James and Brad, talk about a childhood experience with his dad that introduced him to the tech world. Brad also explains the journey of selling his first company to now running a huge VC fund. A major part of todays episode is Mental Health and the stigma around it among entrepreneurs. To conclude the episode, Brad speaks about his quarterly disconnects from business and how it benefits the rest of his year and relationships.
Brad Feld and Dave Jilk bring the wisdom of modernity's most unsettling thinker to entrepreneurship. Like the ancient Stoics, Nietzsche has much to add to the thought of people disrupting existing assumptions today. Brief excerpts from Nietzsche are paired with essays from founders who grapple with the ideas in question.
An Intimate Conversation with Brad Feld - Brad shares his own views on what it means to be a free spirit. What it means to be a disruptor and how every entrepreneur has lessons to learn from this book. The session is also an intimate look at Feld’s own career, as he weaves his own challenges and triumphs into the story of Nietzsche.
Human Cogs Cohost Madeleine Grummet gets under the hood of Brad's real life as a VC, to uncover his personal drivers, trigger points and life learnings, and discover that the human underneath is incredibly thoughtful, deeply reflective, remarkably wise - and a great storyteller. As you’ll learn in this episode, Brad shares how it has taken him a while to find his place, and that as a reformed workaholic, he now regularly goes off the grid to hit the trails around his hometown of Boulder in Colorado to run miles and miles solo. With his 'engineers brain', he's also committed to continuous improvement, and the kind of person who’s more interested in moving towards not away from problems.
