This podcast's purpose is to bring together the field of neuroprosthetics/brain machine interfaces/brain implants in an understandable conversation about the current topics and breakthroughs.

We hope to replace needing to read scientific papers on new research in an easy to digest way.

People can share thoughts or ideas to facilitate 'idea sex' to make the field of brain implants a smaller and more personal space.

Top 3 Takeaways:

  • "Always pull on your network, always pull on that trust factor because people go to work for people. That's what they do, especially in startups and especially really early-stage startups"
  • "If you want to be headhunted, make yourself available to be found, build your LinkedIn profile. Let us find you, there's tools and platforms that exist"

  • "Just realize that there is a stigma. If you're 10 15, 20 years in corporate and you've never left and you want to go join a startup. I'm not saying it's impossible, but you start putting yourself into a box and breaking those shackles of corporate life. Going into a bootstrap, incredibly lean startup mentality, hair on fire, no resources to figure it out yourself can be hard"

1:00 "Do you want to explain what you do?"

4:15 "How are you able to get that talent and be able to consistently get talent?"

9:15 "What advice can you give in order to be headhunted by you? What is like the ideal candidate and what can candidates do to be more attractive?"

15:00 "So what's what can people do, learn or engage in order to build up that repertoire and be more desirable to you or do you just already have to be a CEO to be recruited for a CEO, be in regulatory to be recruited for regulatory? How do you break into that?"

25:00 "Is that kind of the better way to do it is learn skills in a big place and then go to a small place?"

29:30 " What, what should entrepreneurs, or what should companies be looking for?"

34:15 "Is there anything that we didn't talk about that you wanted to mention? Do you want to talk about your podcast as well?"
