Josh Felser

After graduating from Duke and then The Fuqua School of Business, I knew I would never fit in as a big company employee. Entrepreneurship drew me in with its [high energy and immense impact potential]. I ended up co-founding Spinner and Grouper/Crackle, acquired by AOL Time Warner and Sony for $320 million and $65 million, respectively. I also co-founded FYI Living, the “Mythbusters” for health information,” and #climate, a non-profit using social media to inspire real action to counter climate change. Founding Freestyle seemed like a natural next step. Early-stage investing was the perfect fit, allowing me to still harness the startup energy and also help companies grow.

Outside the world of VC, you can catch me DJing every summer at Burning Man, trekking the globe, and following my daily Peloton and meditation routine.

Therapy is for Libtards!

Yes this post is about therapy for founders :), but I had a twitter exchange on therapy with Sean Hannity that actually inspired me to write this post.

Battle of the Sexists

I am scared. About sharing my thoughts publicly. For the first time. And that’s unlike me. But engaging about women in tech is a minefield and so many choose to stay on the sideline
