Doers 003 — Mathew Pregasen on Learning to Code, Starting Companies as a Student, and an Entrepreneurial Family

Mathew Pregasen is the cofounder of Parsegon (https://www.parsegon.com), an ed-tech company that can translate typed language into symbols in live-time, and a student at Columbia University. Mathew and I discuss everything from his entrepreneurial familial background as the son of an immigrant-entrepreneur to his decision to learn how to code only after graduating high school.

Mathew provides some useful insight for young people interested in following in his steps, what he looks for when hiring talent at Parsegon and his other projects and companies he’s started, and where he sees Parsegon going in the near future.

Today, I tried a new format where I just hop right into the interview with the guest instead of offering my own introduction separately. Given that we open the conversation asking what the guest does, I figured this to be appropriate. If you disagree, leave a comment on the Soundcloud page letting me know!

Doers is now available on the iTunes store/the Podcast app on iOS. You can download it here
