Hi - I'm Hooman Radfar. I've been lucky to work on super-scale, data-driven product and growth projects and built stuff that's reached over 2B people. I've also invested and advised companies like Uber, Hyperloop, Convoy, Washio and Thrive Market. I'm psyched to jam with you guys-- ask me anything!

Hi @hoomanradfar - What advice do you have for first-time founders that are searching for funding? When you are approached, how do you judge if something will be a good investment?

@hoomanradfar good to have you here and congrats on the (re)launch of Expa. Do you think connecting Silicon Valley to other ecosystems is beneficial? if yes, how should we optimise for the best result?

Hi Hooman, great to have you here, do you think Expa can help abroad startups get in ?
How would you compare Expa Studios to Rocket Internet (apart from being private/public, market cap, etc) ... ?

Willl Expa be investing in founders who are older than you? Perhaps old school OG multimedia dudes (who also just built Cola!)
