A psychedelic startup. Literally.

Like many in my generation, as a teenager I read The Teachings of Don Juan, the Carlos Castaneda book that ended up being a NY Times best-seller, with over 10 million copies sold. An entire generation was fascinated by his stories of how he took mystical excursions into the desert, ate magic mushrooms, and discovered “springboards into new horizons of cognition”.

I teach entrepreneurship at Stanford, coach startup CEO’s at Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship, and run the 4thly Startup Accelerator.
