Hypergrowth Podcast

By Nikhil Bose, Soham More
We are two students, friends, and venture partners for Contrary Capital devoted to learning as much as possible across multiple disciplines.

While we value education, we believe that university alone doesn't teach all the tools needed to make sense of the world. We call these Mental Models - concepts, frameworks, or world-views taken from different fields and applied to the world around us.

We want to build a toolbox of these models - from some of the greatest thinkers in the world.
