TIM DRAPER

The Jedi Master of Venture Capital

Tim Draper is the world’s most famous venture capital investor who’s backed many companies like Hotmail, Twitter or Tesla. He is a ridiculously nice and charming guy (it might be all that Bitcoin he owns, who knows?), he’s full of amazing advice and has a voice like chocolate silk - which, if it did exist, he could probably afford to buy.

Tim founded DFJ, Draper Associates and Draper University. All you need to know if you’re listening outside Silicon Valley is that Tim is one of the great legacy names known best for a warm smile, a suit and a firm handshake.

His unique ability to pick out opportunities explains why you might have heard of him as one of the world’s most prolific Bitcoin supporters and owners.

We chat with Tim about:

  • A family of venture capitalists

  • What it means to be a hero

  • Why he disagrees with Elon Musk about AI

  • The benefits of Bitcoin

  • His book, “How to be The Startup Hero: A Guide and Textbook for Entrepreneurs and Aspiring Entrepreneurs”

  • What Draper University is all about
