Startup Trek: to boldly go where no VC has gone before

to explore these strange new episodes and pull one startup, entrepreneurship, tech, or investment lesson from each.

Scifi is a great predictor of future tech trends and my go-to genre for (healthy) escapism at the end of the day. I feel like it’s valuable to envision where tech could be far outside the confines of what’s feasible today.

Yes, obviously.

Why TNG?

  1. I tried The Original Series (aired 1966–1969), and although I appreciate how groundbreaking it was, the hokeyness and crappy effects are tough to handle 50+ years later.
  2. Nostalgia. TNG aired from 1987–1994, when I was a kid, and I have vague but happy memories of catching bits of episodes with my dad when I was too young to know what was going on.
