#smallrooms podcast

In this special retrospective recorded one year ago, Rob Kenedi speaks with Sam Molyneux, founder of Meta (at the time known as ScienceScape). Meta is a startup that uses machine learning to look at all of the journals being published in science to uncover emerging discoveries and anticipate their impact ahead of time. The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative just acquired them last week.

Molyneux discusses the key use cases of Meta, why he (as a scientist) saw the need to build a company, how they think about iterating on their product, and how to build an exceptionally complex product that is net new to an industry.

Full disclosure: Meta is a client of TWG, where Rob Kenedi serves as Entrepreneur in Residence.
