About

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Andy Johns and I’m based in the Silicon Valley. I’ve spent my entire career working at technology startups and have been an early part of companies like Facebook, Twitter, Quora and Wealthfront. In my time at those companies I held a variety of roles spanning Growth, Product, and Executive Leadership. Right now, I’m a Partner at Unusual Ventures where I focus on investing in consumer startups.

Along the way I’ve also advised and/or invested in companies such as Blue Bottle Coffee, Opendoor, Poshmark, and Forward.

I created this blog so that I can share my experiential knowledge having been fortunate enough to be a part of many great companies. That way, the next generation of operators, entrepreneurs, and investors might benefit from the collective knowledge that I certainly benefited from throughout my career. If you’d like to keep in touch or follow my other writings then you can find me at QuoraLinkedIn, and Twitter as well.
