About

Seeking first to understand. I’m doing some crazy stuff in 2021, working on personal projects and with the smartest people in crypto. Previously, I was a longtime analyst at CB Insights, covering venture capital with a focus on fintech & crypto. (I also did stints covering frontier tech areas like IoT, AR/VR, and industrial robotics.) Prior to researching VC, I worked at MakerBot in 3D printing.

I love to write. I love data. And I’m always curious to learn more. DM me on Twitter, or try npappageorge at gmail [d0t] com
