Adam Draper, Managing Director and co-founder of Boost, the startup accelerator and VC firm, is interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim. 

In this conversation, they talk about taking your investment advice from sci-fi movies. Exoskeletons, jet packs, iron man suits, time travel, deep ocean exploration. Which specific sci-fi technologies are coming online in the next decade and which have already?

The takeaway is that Sci-fi Tech is here already, and is shaping our world in thought provoking ways. In fact, we no longer need to watch Westworld, Alien, Blade Runner, The Terminator, Back to The Future, The Matrix, Ex-Machina, or even Ready Player One, in order to experience a sci-fi moment, suffice to glance at your smart phone, look inside a contemporary factory, or talk to a deep tech startup founder over coffee. The world of our dreams —and fears—is rapidly coming to life in this decade alone.

Adam Draper

Managing Director & founder, Boost VC Accelerator

Adam Draper is the founder and managing director of Boost VC. Adam is a 2x entrepreneur and a 4th generation venture capitalist.

For Adam, no idea is too crazy. He dreams of building an ironman suit and leads the deals in the wildest SciFi Tech investments - exoskeletons, jetpacks, rockets... Go big or go home. The focus of Boost VC on future technology development stems from Adam Draper’s dream to create an Iron Man suit. He co-founded Boost VC after his success as an Angel Investor in companies like Coinbase, Amplitude and Plangrid. In a previous life, he wanted to be a professional tennis player and has an odd affinity for Australians. He once drank an entire bottle of tabasco sauce (the big ones) in 43 seconds. 4th generation venture capitalist, 2 time entrepreneur, and most importantly, he’s a friend : )
