Everything we published this week
It’s a recap!
Not enough time to read our ‘mails during the week? This one’s for you.
Former Napkin Math writer and friend of Every Adam Keesling is hosting a cohort-based course on developing an investment thesis and writing a great investment memo. The course begins Sept 27 and enrollment ends Sept 24th! Learn more here. (In case you weren’t around back then, may we also recommend one of Adam’s biggest pieces ever—and one of Every’s—“How Costco Convinces Brands to Cannibalize Themselves: An unlikely marriage where both sides win,” from July 2020.)

Nathan Baschez, Dan Shipper, and Rachel Jepsen in Talk Therapy
Li Jin and Nathan Baschez in Means of CreationLoot and Nouns DAO have taken over all our Twitter feeds. But how do these communities arise and gather momentum? Patrick Rivera is a product engineer at Mirror—a crypto native creative suite, with crowdfunding & publishing tools for creators. He spoke with the team about how Mirror is powering the convergence of crypto and the creator economy, and how crypto-native projects are rewriting the playbook around raising capital and launching products. Patrick believes that more projects will take this decentralized, bottom-up approach in the future—giving everyone the opportunity to invest in projects they care about, right from the get go.
