Voice

I upload a bunch of things into the podcasting stratosphere: opinion snippets, tech news roundtables and in-depth interviews.

I have a strong European accent and I use lots of emms between sentences.

But if those kind of things don't bother you, check it out:

Video

In my channel, I talk to founders and venture capitalists about the startups they build and invest in.

The goal is to give viewers a sense of what it's like to be in their shoes, how their businesses tick and sometimes take a technical deep dive.

Person

Hi, I'm Erasmus Elsner.

I'm a PhD at ETH Zurich, where I conduct research on the law and economics of venture capital and startups.

I'm also the founder of a consumer marketplace, which I bootstrapped for more than a year before it got funding from one of the largest VC funds in the Valley. It did not find product-market fit, but it happily lives on.

If you want to get in contact with me, reach out to me on the Twitter, through Reid Hoffman's second social network, Naval's list or through good old SMTP.
