Chamath Palihapitiya is the founder and CEO of Social
Capital, where he invests in private businesses, public markets,
and experiments with that objective of compounding capital at high
rates so that he can advance humanity by solving the world’s
hardest problems. Chamath previously was an early employee at
Facebook, a prolific angel investor, and co-founder of the venture
capital business that was the first version of Social Capital. He’s
been in the press of late for raising and deploying a series of
large SPACs and for his outspoken views.
Our conversation covers Chamath’s path to Facebook and Social Capital, his period of self-discovery, and the resulting Social Capital 2.0 to express his views of the world. From there, we dive into SC Emerging Managers, Social Capital’s newest program to back managers from diverse backgrounds. Lastly, we circle back to the purpose of Social Capital and how Chamath gets it all done.
