On today's episode, Chris sits down with Connor Firmender, Cofounder and CEO of Endevr, a SaaS startup company focused on connecting early professionals with their ideal learning paths.

We talk about what inspired the launch of Endevr, the reasons why they take a skill-based learning approach instead of a role-based approach, and ways to change how education systems prepare their young students to enter the job market. We even cover some of Connor's different education paths and how that led to him think differently about the process of learning.

We also dive deep into the concept of "seasteading", as well as some projects Connor is working on in this field. The 5 pillars of this oceantech, or "bluetech", project revolves around:

  1. Map
  2. Explore
  3. Power
  4. Protect
  5. Prepare
