Garry Tan has been highlighted in the news lately because of his early investment of a couple hundred thousand dollars with Coinbase that sky-rocketed to more than 2 Billion dollars since the company has gone public.
This co-founder of the highly successful venture capital firm, Initialized Capital, didn’t always believe that he was destined for success in tech. After graduating from Stanford it became quite apparent that breaking into Silicon Valley wasn’t to be an easy feat, and he temporarily thought he would have to fall back into a career of photography to pay his way through life. Fortunately for him, things took a huge turn, and today he is recognized as a giant in the tech world.
It wasn’t his ivy league degree that eventually got his career off the ground, but a positive attitude and a giving heart that finally swung the golden doors of opportunity open. In this short video, Garry breaks down the value of giving and how it can greatly benefit your own life.
