How to Trust Your Gut, with Adam Nathan of Almanac

When you sit down to work, do you often find yourself starting at a blank page? Adam Nathan and his team at Almanac are trying to fix that. Just as Github has allowed engineers to access a database of code, Almanac is doing the same for knowledge workers and documents. With user growth doubling month-over-month and a roster of investors that includes 100 expert startup operators, Almanac is on a mission to democratize access to knowledge. Nathan shares why we're at an inflection point of businesses going fully digital, why he measures success by users outside of Silicon Valley, and how an internship at Apple made him realize he wanted to be a founder.
