    Ep. 2 Andrew Nijmeh

    Today, we’re welcoming Andrew Nijmeh to the podcast. Andrew got his start coding at a startup when he was just 12 years old and recently received a grant from Tyler Cowen at Emergent Ventures to build his first company, focused on solving traffic using AI and reinforcement learning. A quick note: the audio on this recording leaves something to be desired, but I assure you the conversation does not. On the show today, Andrew tells us about how he made his first dollar online, what he learned working with people far older than himself, and his experience building his startup. Enjoy.
