About this event

Bryan Johnson is an entrepreneur and investor. He is the founder of OS Fund and Braintree (PayPal/eBay).
Bryan launched OS Fund in 2014 with $100 million of his personal capital to support inventors and scientists who aim to benefit humanity by rewriting the operating systems of life. His investments include endeavors to cure age-related diseases and radically extend healthy human life to 100+ (Human Longevity), make biology a predictable programming language (Gingko Bioworks & Synthetic Genomics), replicate the human visual cortex using artificial intelligence (Vicarious), mine an asteroid (Planetary Resources), reinvent transportation using autonomous vehicles (Mattternet) and reimagine food using biology (Hampton Creek), among others.
 
In 2007, Bryan founded Braintree, an online and mobile payments provider. Under Bryan’s leadership as CEO, Braintree acquired thousands of the most discerning and disruptive companies in the world as customers (including Airbnb, GitHub, OpenTable and Uber) and created the critical infrastructure that powered the industry-wide shift to mobile commerce. Bryan profitably bootstrapped the company for its first five years of operations. The company raised two rounds of venture capital, acquired Venmo, and was bought by eBay in 2013 for $800 million in cash.
Bryan is an outdoor-adventure enthusiast (mountains, volcanoes, arctic dog sledding), a pilot and author of a children's book.
