THRIVE GLOBAL -- As a part of my series about “Big Ideas That Might Change The World In The Next Few Years” I had the pleasure of interviewing Tom Anderson, Neil Poulin and Ryan Brown, co-founders of Kinecho, a Denver-based startup focused on preserving life stories. Tom received his Ph.D. in demography from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was bitten by the startup bug and became fascinated by the field of consumer behavior. Neil studied engineering at the University of Michigan, became a sales engineer and pivoted to coding after realizing he could build tech solutions to make his life easier. Ryan studied English literature at San Francisco State University before a long career in coffee, first as an international coffee buyer and then as Blue Bottle Coffee’s first product manager.
