I’m so excited to present this episode with, Anthony Zhang, who was the founder of EnvoyNow, a USC food delivery application. I first read about Anthony’s story in Fortune, where Anthony was a Thiel Fellow, Shark Tank Alum, in 500 Startups but went through a traumatic accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down… Anthony has been doing a lot better since, and managed to sell his start-up while going through hours of physical therapy a day. His grit and passion is to say the least inspiring, and I hope that you enjoy the episode.

  1. Could you please give a brief background of yourself?
  2. What made you decide to start EnvoyNow instead of pursuing investment banking or consulting?
  3. What was it like to pitch Mark Cuban at USC for Shark Tank?
  4. When did you know that you were going to win the Thiel fellowship?
    1. How does the Thiel Fellowship work?
  5. Transitioning to your accident, could you touch upon what happened, your thoughts, and what helped you persevere and get through the difficult times?
  6. What gave you motivation to recover, any support systems you relied on, I’m curious what people strive towards or rely on during times of great difficulty?
  7. How long did it take you to get better?
