ThinkTank.vc connects thought leaders - investors, founders, and thinkers - to explore trends, theses, and ideas at the frontier of technological innovation.

Each vertical we cover is organized by noted investors (split between east coast and west coast) who organize conversations, publish a bimonthly newsletter, and host events within their vertical of focus.

Within each vertical we include contributors who are either active investors, founders of venture backed companies, and true experts in the space.
