After a long flight back from HIMSS17 Orlando without much sleep, I attended a Founders Pledge dinner in SF last night. I got to know the folks from Founders Pledge when David Goldberg visited 500 Startups last September.

Through Founders Pledge, founders commit to donating at least 2% of their personal proceeds upon exit. No changes in cap table or board approval necessary. David is a closer: I signed up and was on-boarded within 5 minutes. Very impressive.

At dinner, I sat next to Chris Hollindale, CEO of Zesty. His company graciously donated the delicious food.

HRDAG: The Key Thing That We Do About it is Persist

I think it’s fair to say everyone in the room was impressed with Patrick’s presentation. I couldn’t help but get excited by his passion for statistics and machine learning in the realm of human rights.

I’m looking forward to having a beer with him.

UPDATE (2 March 2017): After having had a couple beers with Patrick last night, my conclusion is that he’s one of the most interesting people I’ve met since I moved back to SF.

Check out his bio.
