#1484 How a partner at Sequoia thinks about startups

This is what I love about San Francisco: I was out with my son and I met another father who was a founder.
He was telling me about his new startup but what amazed me was the way he thought about it and how he thought about entrepreneurship in general.
Today’s guest is a guy who thinks the way I want to think and someone I want to be influenced by.
Warren Hogarth is a partner at Sequoia and his latest company is Empower, a personal financial assistant on your phone.
I invited him here to talk about how he built his business but more importantly, what he’s learned about startups from being a partner at Sequoia.
