And how they unpack these stories for our audience and it's really quite extraordinary. We originally talked about this organization as being four high school students by college students. There's probably a better way to say that we thought about having this be a initiative that really highlighted the voice of the college student for the high school students.

We want to offer opportunities for the students themselves to hear from others and learn about what's important to them through the lens of their peers and i think tried talk is really fitting for that type of conversation.

We want to offer opportunities for the students themselves to hear from others and learn about what's important to them through the lens of their peers and i think tried talk is really fitting for that type of conversation. In fact our next webinar is going to be a student. Only webinar that is going to be called current college students. Ask me anything soon-to-be talking about college and we have a panel of were lining up a panel of college students to talk to high school students and had any of their questions answered. That's really the heart of tribe talk. Let's talk about the future. What are your hopes and aspirations going forward michelle. Let's start with you. One of the main goals of for tribe talk is to help. Jewish students find their way to college through the college search process. Once they're on campus empowering them to feel proud of being jewish on campus and preparing them to encounter any antisemitism and anti zionism challenges they may face. We really hope to be the bridge from high school to college by.

There is a different website you can go to to learn about schools that have hill. Elle's there's a different website that you can go to to learn about. Schools are do not have wells. You can look on the school's website itself we're trying to do by the college. Comparison is take information from all those sources and put it into one complete guide. So if you wanna get you wanna compare one university versus another. You'll be able to sit in one organization one website and compare the two organizations. What kind of jewish life.

"You're finding your people. And so what. I think is really important. What i see tribe talk really doing defining who we are in this landscape Very complicated organizational. Whatever it is is that we're giving these kids agency and they're finding the ladders of the kids. Were a little bit older than them. A little bit younger than them and they are knitting together fabric of a community of caring individuals that are stepping up. And saying hey this is not okay. This is my college experience too so again. What i tried talk is unique in terms of what it's creating as we are in. Its berthier ninety. Nine ashi anniversary net yet but soon is really about the connectivity and building a stronger vibrant community on whatever college campus. Our students our kids or other kids are finding to be their best choice for their college experience. In the audience that tribe talk dot org is addressing is certainly the high school student..

"Student. But it's also the college student junior or senior year. It's never too late to get the information you need to survive and thrive on campus. Right and i think one of the things that we are not We'll probably talk about this. Oh further down in the The interview is we are not an advocacy group because thankfully ad l. and san with us in opener media helped of many many many other organizations. That are out there that are doing important work that we can direct our students to go to to get clarity to learn about having more of an understanding about topics that just don't feel as well informed so again it's really about that landscape. What i call the ground the ground cover if you will to really give them a chance to be able to start to identify. What is it that i know and what is it. I'm still that. I'm lacking knowledge in and awareness So i think that's really really important to differentiate who we are in a sea of other acronyms out there. I was gonna follow up on. Jude's point the landscape knowing where to go when you get on campus and how to find your jewish path and the meaning in your jewish on campus is so integral to what we're doing here. It's not only the standing up for your jewish identity and standing up for israel standing up for who you want to be as you become a young adult in the world and so if you really care about hillary that's great if you wanna be in the jewish fraternity we understand to what tried talk. Doing is not only the anti zionist anti-semitism is also doing the meaning making on campus finding a place for these jewish students to come in find a place of belonging in connection. That is so true. Michelle this is really a group of people and organization that is looking to do something positive for the students and create a sense of community as we do so robin suburb building community in two different ways. One way is. We started this year with an internship program. We had twenty five insurance this summer. High school.

"We'll do it online. And then shortly thereafter we realized zoom is not a place for six hour seminar particularly since the kids. Were already zoomed out. From all of the schoolwork they ended up doing online and slowly but surely as a result of that we created tribe. Talk which is really an information hub as well as a connection in all. Stay with you if it's okay. Let's define the challenge. The problem where tribe talk can certainly make a difference so let me start by saying not every student who goes to college ends up being confronted by anti semitism anti zionism that is certainly not the case and a lot of students go to school and have a great experience and don't really have any sort of interaction with any negative experiences however many jewish students are faced with some form of antisemitism somewhere along the way their college experience and unfortunately they're getting it from the extreme right and extreme left so on the right. They're seeing a misses a rip down from their door frame or they're seeing a swastika on a building that they attend like a hill l. On the left denouncing zionism has really become a litmus test in many schools for students to participate in a social justice activity. And so for example. There was recently an op. Ed in an arizona state university student run paper that cell said that student groups should refuse to co sponsor events with pro israel groups. So that means. If you're pro. You shouldn't be allowed to participate in climate change or raising the minimum wage or other things that affect students that have nothing to do with being jewish being israel but you're being marginalized unless you wanted denounced zionism and there are many many examples of that. That have happened over the last year or last few years. And that's really what students are facing both from the right and from the left. We have a friend whose daughter came back from christmas break and said that over spring break she was going to go on birthright and her four roommates. Stop speaking to her. Why because they said if she was going to go to israel than she was anti-palestinian and couldn't talk to her and her attitude was not anti anything. I just want to go and learn and see and they said sorry. If you're going to go to israel we can't speak to you anymore. That is happening on college. Campuses as my oldest son. Evan was preparing to go to college. He's first your student at tufts university. We have the benefit of meeting with someone about track talk Who talked to us about the campus environment and one thing that was really concerning to me as he said the jewish students feel left out of progressive students spaces so of my son wants to rally for immigration reform immigration reform that could be sponsored by s j p which is an organization that he probably doesn't know what it's all about or what it stands for and he shows up promoting israel he's gonna be targeted with the star on his back no pun intended in. I think it's really important for us to know how there's this. One person termed baseball card activism. So a lot of these groups are organizing themselves together. And they're they're leaving. In some instances the jewish students out in and i think that The other thing i learned at talking to him was that when things do occur in the administration is always eager to respond and respond appropriately..

What's going on on the college campuses. And as i became more educated i realized there's a lot going on the college campuses that the kids are going to college and they're not aware of and they're not prepared for an after the ad l. conference. I remember walking out. And i said to jude. We have a problem because it was mostly adults and it didn't get into the details. There was a lot of really great information but it wasn't detailed enough. No wasn't really the kids weren't able to hear what they really needed to hear and so i said to her we have to do something. We talked to michelle and we decided we were going to start a seminar and the seminar was called know before you go and we had a lot of community support from that And as a result of that we set up an entire seminar and we had a keynote speaker and breakouts and tremendous setup and then covert hit and as a result of that we said.

"Today's Wednesday. September thirtieth. America's blood pressure is up Disney theme park jobs are down and we're focused on one of Silicon Valley's most controversial companies. Earlier today Pantene tear technologies went public on the New York Stock. Exchange. It did so via a direct listing rather than an IPO. But that's not even the interesting part except to finance nerds instead it's because Pailin tear has long been known as secretive and controversial and to be honest unique with within tech industry known for Copycat. ISM. Penalty was created in two thousand and three to apply information technology to anti-terrorism campaigns by a group of founders who included current CEO, alcs, carp current venture capitalist, Joe Lonsdale, and Peter Thiel, the well-known facebook director, and inform advisor to president trump. Also pledged to help secure people's data from their own governments kind of philosophy of we'll help them find you. But only if you've done something really bad. As Alex Kerr recently told axios on HBO. If the US government targets somebody with a drone strike chances are that talents your software was used somewhere along the way. Pound tears since. Moved into work with government entities like ice, which obviously doesn't make it to popular in large swath of liberal Silicon Valley. It also works with governments if foreign. And a growing number of businesses which represents around half of its revenue. Oh and speaking of revenue and balance sheets pound. Cheers unprofitable despite a massive valuation and a longtime in business. So we want to dig into what Palette here is and what it isn't with company CO founder Joe Lonsdale, who no longer works pound here but who continues to be paid a consulting fee and who holds a whole lot of Pailin tear stock that conversation in fifteen seconds. Bridge Bank knows the INS and outs of business ups and downs and remains dedicated to providing financial solutions to the risk takers, the game changers, and the disrupters those committed to leveraging innovation to make the world a better place bridge. Bank is a division of Western Alliance, Bank ridgeback be bold venture wisely. We're joined. Now by Joe Lonsdale a CO founder of technologies also, a venture capitalist who runs Eight v C.. So Joe, what was kind of the mission when you help found Pailin tear basic idea was to take a really competent technology culture that had gotten way ahead of Washington D. C. and to apply to solve the most important problems going on at the time, which was basically to help bring together data to solve. Problems and stop terrorism stock attacks while protecting civil liberties the protecting civil liberties you obviously well, no kind of some of the criticism of Pailin tear, which is this idea that has gone from as you say, kind of protecting US troops overseas to enabling whether it be ice or NSA to spy to a certain extent on Americans how do you respond to that because it seem to be kind of a fundamental mission creep? Well, if you look at what we're doing, we're helping augment the human mind to act on data and act on data they're allowed to act on and to me it's really ironic that is seen as problematic that way because the whole idea was, let's build in such a way that people are only allowed to see share they're allowed to see in share. So there's audit trails you can watch the watchers. It's a rather than like the show twenty four were Jack Bauer goes and just whatever he wants to get the bad guy let's have a system. That only lets them use the data legally only the way they're allowed to you, and that's the whole point is helter is a privacy engine that lets you only see what the rule say allowed to see. How does Powell to your protect that data from talent here basically set up there, and it's very clear how pounder works with whoever's in charge always see who's accessing what so I mean I suppose it is possible that if the people using it are doing. So in a way, it's it's hidden from pounds here in charge all the way up the top could be involved in. Something, they're not supposed to be doing that is the power they have. However, it's designed such way. It's very hard for any small bricks to get away with anything. They not supposed to do because people talk about full control and can't see what happened. What was access isn't that one of the concerns that when you've got a company that's collecting and analyzing and kind of merging so much data that even though whether it be ice or the NSA or some corporate customer doesn't have access, there is somebody who has access and it does open the possibility of there being a bad actor somewhere. Well it makes it a lot harder to have a bad actor. If you haven't information infrastructure that's tracking everything tracking exactly how it's used and the has pounds here itself doesn't have access to all the data that people are using pounds here to work on. So it's not like talent you're sitting in the middle is able to see everything. You're always when I read a story about that, it's referred to as the secretive silicon valley technology company I know this bothers me a lot and you know what it is. Helen chairs culture is really good at getting the most talented engineers technologists in the world and saw the really hard problems in these really cool missions they go on with their customers to work on penalty here does not have very sophisticated and built out PR group. In fact, the PR strategy seems to be to avoid talking to the press I. Guess that makes us secretive but it's funny because we go to their site they explain. How the technology works explain when it's it's really complicated. Building information infrastructure is not easy. It's not complicated most of us don't understand it so I think rather than secretive is that it's doing something that is just relatively Tarik most people, Alex Carpet Interview with my colleague Mike. Allen for our HBO show about a month or two ago, and he talked about how even within his own family certain things pound here has decided to do have been controversial for you. Are there things are their customers their clients at has taken on that? You think man if I was in charge, we wouldn't have done that. It's an interesting question. Actually I don't have full information on exactly how it's working western countries in the Middle East I tend to be very pro enforcing the laws in the US never they are working with our allies works with thirty to forty nine over five countries probably were forty point. I'm very allying with talents here. Don't China don't work with Russia Iran Etcetera. Obvious one son other allies in the Middle East I. Don't know exactly how they're using it. I. Always get a little bit of a queasy feeling myself. Exactly what people do in certain countries where my values are not aligned with their pounder has a strong set of principles internally but I've actually not privy conversation since I can't say for sure that I, agree with every. Choice. They've made their but in general I support with Algiers done number like trout and all these things they've done does that include ice and I guess I asked the question because the company originally was kind of founded at the time of the Iraq war and as you said, was kind of an anti-terrorism thing in part it seems correct me if I'm wrong about this. The part of its technology is being used by not to identify violent criminals, but to identify people whose sole crime is crossing a border but not violence. Well, in general, the company has to make a choice he's going to support US laws are not you know I was actually when I started we joke, maybe we shouldn't be helping the IRS depending on different people have. Different views morally of that, and of course, it does out the IRS while I think in general helping the government do what does better is right thing to do I personally am very against some art immigration laws that said minor standing as the Obama Administration worked with here with ice and they actually ended up stopping a lot of child traffickers and caught law child. Traffickers, thanks their works Joe Your Day job now is being venture capitalist, identifying new tech companies which to invest. Do you see baby palim tears coming up from behind it? Because from my perspective on the outside, I don't seem to see much you've got a lot of big data companies but not ones that are aiming at the same sorts of markets found series. That's A. Really good question and actually gets the heart wise special company. It's actually something very similar to what we did without a apart is we took a bunch of really talented people and we worked on a problem that take four or five seven years to really solve properties very, very hard problem to take these things that used to be services and to make into products there's. One hundred billion dollars year services everyone around the world does that nobody else has been able to turn as many of them into products such a hard technical problem. So ideal hope to have somebody else spent hundreds of billions of dollars with equity driven team of the very top talent to be able to pounce here does I have not seen people.

I'd probably advised not and and online services much more right because you can get pretty far that I might also say that you know and this is the third model. At which is you might serve the community. So there's idea there's executioners community right so you know nowadays on I've got a following on my twitter removes or what have you and the interaction of them is sort of like you know person community Fit Right. And then that community you can withdraw. A protocol can withdraw a product and so forth. And that's something. I was just less thinking about back in twenty thirteen today but that might be third angle on things you know to take a community.

Okay and look at that ridiculous Thanksgiving giving day drop and breach by the way has risen dramatically right so uber is now essentially just breeds their second. Business has become their first. That's literally their business. Okay now the thing about this is a reversal business. Plan for you know like fortunately for over it. At least the corporation they can. Disengage drivers when demand plummets. Like those but But that's like a you know ridiculous. Drop right like seventy percent drop revenue. However here's the thing. Notice how we dropped but not breeds one of things. I was short on Uber. Benatti reads is pretty good. It's pretty specific prediction in terms of what to be long insured on. And frankly you know. I never talk about trades online because that's investing Advice River Bellizzi.

Facemasks remote were Tele presence bioinformatics at that holds up. One of those were in drones. Me Put an asterisk on simply because there's such supply chain disruption demand me there have been not not the supply we'll have to see. You can make VR headsets in the US but everything else is clearly going especially like Mike. Remote workshops zoom and stuff and then on the short side of things. I think that holds up pretty well as well traveled tender grinder hotels AIRBNB airlines in person. You know blue cities come back it up. Real estate is crashing commercial real estate and blue cities restaurants conferences digital nomads. In the sense of moving around the world. You can't do that anymore. Remember Berates so I think that holds a pretty darn well right and I think that's like let's call it a part of the comp investing thesis if you remember this concept of the digital divide this is the thing in the late Ninety S O. Some people have access to Internet others. Don't right so April seventh. This concept which I think is one mental model. The fiscal divide bright digital is now cheap with billions of smartphones around the world. It's a physical. That's expensive case for last two years. We've made the cost of putting a bunch of transistors on a chip that that's now cheap but putting a bunch of people in rooms now expensive okay so the measure of a competent society is one that can actually hold a rally if you can do that you are. You're confident in the people. There are confident of the steam and the diagnostics. And so on that you know you can have this huge crowd that it's being tested to them into their life and they all come and congregate there right. I from incompetence state and for citizenry. That is not cooperatives. The Commons are attracting. And you can't basically there's a field state in between your house in the next person's House. You have to wear masks you you know you basically house a like like a place where you can't show your face you know. Maybe it's pollution meets infection. It's not the comments aren't actually traversable. So I think this is a powerful mental model for the next several years at least that physical is expensive and one thing that means by the way is digital now cheap physicals now expensive so everybody is GonNa want offer substitute for things because you know Sadler tweet. By the way that I was really surprised. People wild doubt about the I one more question for you which is a CO founders. Are we sort of in the picking co-founder similar to sort of dating before that you're limited to the people that you went to college with or worked with or is that for Co founder? Is that actually good? She's should you stick to that pool. How do you think what's your framework for picking the Right Co founder? Yeah know so so like the way I kind of think about this is having and being like an investor and having seen like lots of these things and whatnot so you should pick somebody who who's is complementary to you okay and there should always be clear. Ceo that's like the most important component the thing about that is like the question of WHO's the CEO. That's like one of the very first conversations you need to have and ideally. It's something where that's obvious between between you but if it's not a for example at the beginning of joint base itself public knowledge but you know Brian and the Guy who helped found blocking didn't so they had a screaming. Send you know what they were outright and basically blocks company and Mrs Good Company. That type of stuff shouldn't be resolved. There's also an ideological dispute watching to be able to have a wallet where they couldn't have the password password reset four the road actually very substantive. It's two different visions of the future. Both of which trinite illegitimate visions of Crypto? Right true product. Difference on on simple thing pastor reset so so that's that's like a good example of a few things. I who's the leader Second Woods A LONG-TERM IDEOLOGICAL VISION THIRD OUR SKILLS COMPLIMENTARY? I do not do these. Co-founder dating sites or whatever. Kids these days you know like I don't know I don't know if that works. I feel some could work but it feels inorganic. Maybe you know I think the best thing to do is to actually work on a project with that person and find that there's an actual division of labor nothing substitutes for that because working with somebody is just very very different from talking to them on. It's like they have to cash the past when you throw it into it. What you meant not necessarily what you said. Lots and lots of little things like that have to tolerate your using 'cause nobody's ever heard strong and every dimension or some people are few and so I think actually doing and shipping project. Ideally one involves money and customer support with them like is is probably the best bet naked or something like that but try to push it all the way through such that book that you have legal liability together or or customers yelling you. That's real trial by fire. Balji thank you so much for coming on give a digital rotten for her volatility. If you're an early stage entrepreneur we'd love to hear from you check us out.
