The Foundr Podcast with Nathan Chan

Tim Draper, one of the most successful venture capital investors on the planet, thinks all entrepreneurs should read science fiction. He believes anticipating what the world needs in 15 years is critical to creating an innovative business idea. 


As the founder of Draper Associates, DFJ, and Draper University, Draper has been an early investor in Tesla, Skype, SpaceX, Twitter, Coinbase, and Twitch—just to name a few. The billionaire has also mentored well over 1,000 early-stage investors.


Foundr CEO Nathan Chan sat down with Draper to talk about: 

  • The future-focused framework that will help you identify profitable opportunities 
  • How traditional schools fail to prepare entrepreneurs for success 
  • Why entrepreneurs must embrace mistakes
  • Why the early stages of business should be like throwing a party 
  • The value of focusing “a million miles deep and an inch wide” 
  • The future of blockchain, Bitcoin, and entrepreneurship 
  • And much more...
