About This Episide
Fritz Lanman is the CEO of ClassPass; the largest pre-IPO, health & fitness tech startup. He’s also a prolific Angel investor with investments in: Square, Pinterest, Wish, Flexport, Formlabs, etc… 100+ investments over the past decade! Fritz started his career @ Microsoft after getting his Bachelor’s degree in history from Yale. He rose through the ranks to become one of the youngest Directors in Microsoft history! He was the “go to guy” for many things Corporate Strategy and M&A and led the $240M Facebook ($FB) investment in 2007 when $FB was only worth $15B; that’s ~45X as of today! After Microsoft, Fritz founded and was CEO of Livestar, a mobile-based recommendation engine on food and culture that sold to Pinterest in 2013. I consider Fritz to be a preeminent Business Ninja in all things from Startups to investing. We explore his kernels of knowledge and wisdom. He would give Master Splinter a run for his cheese- COWABUNGA!
