20 DEC 2018 - “[As a founder] there is no stopping. The commitment is bottomless in a way that I’ve never had before…and so it requires a level of emotional resilience and balance that is not the easiest thing to do,” says Josh Hoffman, co-founder and CEO of biotech startup Zymergen in the latest episode of the firm’s podcast, Exchanges at Goldman Sachs. Hoffman joined Jen Rubio, co-founder and chief brand officer of luggage startup Away, and Dan Dees, co-head of Goldman Sachs’ Investment Banking Division to discuss what it’s really like to start and scale a company.
