Today’s guest is my friend with a super large brain, warm heart and a great smile Serge Kassardjian. Serge is the co-founder and CEO of StayTuned Digital (they acquire and grow Shopify apps that accelerate merchant growth) and a partner at 6th Man Ventures (I am an LP in his fund). He got his MBA from Harvard and Bachelors and Masters in Engineering from Stanford (lazy kid), where he was the President of his class. Serge is an investor and entrepreneur with irons in the fire of two of the most volatile sectors these days – e-commerce and crypto, so he’s the perfect guest right now for Panic with Friends. As the pundits at CNBCq say ‘the markets are in turmoil’; and it’s not just crypto, but our beloved e-commerce stocks, including Amazon $AMZN and Shopify $SHOP.
On today’s podcast we get into Serge’s love of STEPN – the crypto/web3 lifestyle/fitness app, and what the future crypto/web3 ecosystem might look like for us ‘normies’. (Full disclosure: StayTuned is a Social Leverage (Fund III) portfolio company.)
