An angel investor, founder, podcaster, author, and general startup-helper from Texas, James Beshara lives in San Francisco with his wife, daughter, and hilarious dachshund, Mr. Wendell.
Inc, Forbes, and Time Magazine have included James in their “30 Under 30” lists, and over the years, he has been featured in The NY Times, Forbes, CNN, Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal, and the Guardian, and has been invited to speak at places like Harvard Business School, Stanford, Y Combinator, TechCrunch Disrupt, SXSW, the World Bank, and others.
In an effort to break his daily coffee addiction, James recently authored Beyond Coffee: A Sustainable Guide to Nootropics, Adaptogens, and Mushrooms. His new book is a guide to turbo charging your day with safe and natural compounds.
He is also the host of a podcast focused on the inner journey of founding, leading, and creating called “Below the Line with James Beshara” that NY Times bestselling author, Eric Ries, has called “the most exciting new podcast in the startup world”
