044 - User-Owned Talent Network with Adam Jackson

Episode Summary

I'm excited to share my conversation with Adam Jackson, the co-founder, and CEO of Braintrust. Braintrust is a platform that connects organizations with the top technical talent to complete strategic projects and drive innovation. I'm particularly impressed with how they are innovating their business model and providing tremendous value for their community of over 100k software engineers, product designers, and product managers. Braintrust has gained massive traction, working with 150 of Fortune 1000, including well-known companies like Porsche and Goldman Sachs. In late 2021, they raised $100M from Coutue and Tiger Global in a large token sale, making it one of the best examples of a  web3, user-owned network that delivers real value to the world. Having Braintrust as a resource at my fingertips gave me the courage to take another plunge into my new startup, Realworld Asset Group, and I'm grateful to currently be the #1 connector on their affiliate leaderboard. In this interview, you'll hear me applaud the clarity of Braintrust's mission and my excitement about how they are helping so many people in so many ways.
