About this event

Cédric lives with just 64 things. All his possessions fit into a backpack. He was homeless for over two and a half years. Despite being on 120 flights per year and staying no more than three days in one place, he's still happy and productive.

Cédric's been fascinated with startups since he started his first company at age 14. More recently he helped start DFINITY, a blockchain project that has attracted over 200M CHF in funding from A16Z, Polychain and other private investors. He's currently figuring out what's next for him.

Cédric's fascinated with Experiments. Questioning the status quo in all areas of life is his favourite past time activity.

We'll have a wide ranging conversation about blockchain, fasting, minimalism and everything in between.
