And now for this week’s prescription:

On this week’s dose, we have Josh Rahn, Co-Founder and General Partner at Oceans, an early stage venture fund focused on the New York entrepreneurial ecosystem and other emerging tech markets like Austin.

Josh embarked on a captivating and winding journey into the world of venture capital. His trajectory began with the acquisition of a company from his fraternity brothers at Wash U, propelling him into the trucking and logistics industry post-college, where he truly caught the entrepreneurial bug. 

His ventures extended even into the music industry, including a stint as the assistant tour manager for Hall 'n Oates. Subsequently, he founded a company that he later sold to Sony.

Taking a leap of faith, Josh followed a trusted boss and mentor to a fledgling startup called Facebook. Nine years later, having played a significant role in establishing Facebook's NYC office, Josh garnered invaluable experience and forged connections with influential figures in the tech industry.

After a hiatus prompted by his son "firing him from the house" post-Facebook, Josh rekindled his passion for entrepreneurship. He began advising founders in New York, eventually realizing that this was his true calling.

Teaming up with like-minded friends, Josh co-founded Oceans. Each member brought specific expertise to the table, enabling them to support founders in a hands-on manner that went beyond the financial aspect. This approach earned them a stellar reputation among their founders.

In the interview, Josh shares captivating stories, hearty laughs, and valuable lessons from his illustrious career. We're thrilled to present this engaging conversation with Josh to our audience. Without further ado, here's our discussion with Josh.
