“There's often a binary debate occurring in society, which is about crypto assets—is the asset class a zero? And it's a bit of the wrong debate to be having. The right question to ask here is, are there crypto-assets that deserve a weighting in your portfolio?” – Joe Percoco

Key Takeaway

Joe places a lot of weight on company culture and the importance of finding team members that really fit into the established tribe. He compares this to understanding your company’s operating system, it’s core “biology,” and assessing whether potential team members truly connect at that level.

“The second most important product you ship is how everyone works together. The biggest unlock is the realization that most people underweight working on the company OS. And if you think about a company, at a molecular level, the biology of a company, what is the atom? And is this a high-performing atom? Or is this a mediocre atom?”
