    Career Advice from Sonia Arrison, 100+ Capital

    Career Advice from Sonia Arrison, 100+ Capital

    Sonia Arrison, 100+ Capital
    Sonia is a longevity investor via her company 100+ Capital, a women’s investor group called Portfolia, and advises BioVerge here in Silicon Valley. She also spends time helping the Alliance for Longevity Initiatives (A4LI). She is helping A4LI streamline the political processes for advancing longevity research and therapies.

    When Sonia first moved to California from Canada in 1999, she helped educate congresspeople about the internet and digital technologies. She soon became interested in nanotechnology, and by extension the Foresight Institute. Her interests then turned toward longevity, and she began writing articles here and there about the topic. Peter Thiel convinced her to turn those articles into a book – “100+: how the coming age of longevity will change everything”.

    She was later pulled into a project with Ryan Bethencourt at IndieBio, becoming his first investor. That catalyzed her role as an angel investor in the longevity biotech space. Around that same time, she was involved in Singularity University. She realized how investable the longevity space had become, and rather than write yet another book she became a major investor in the longevity space.

    Emil Kendziorra, Max More | How do you sign up to cryonics?

    Should cryonics be our plan A for life extension?  If so, how do you sign up to cryonics? In this episode of the podcast Emil Kendziorra and Max More answers all the most common (and uncommon) questions about signing up for cryonics. 
    Emil Kendziorra
    Emil received his doctoral degree in translational cancer research. Between 2009 and 2019 he founded, grew, and then sold multiple medical- and tech-startups by himself. In the medical field he founded MedLanes, a service that provides medical home visits at the press of a button, even during Covid times. In 2019, the experience and financial resources he gathered allowed him to finally create the company he always wanted to create: Tomorrow Biostasis.

    Max More
    Max More is a philosopher and futurist who writes, speaks, and consults on advanced decision-making about emerging technologies. He is the current Ambassador and President Emeritus (as of February 2021) after serving almost nine and a half years as president and CEO of Alcor Life Extension Foundation.
