Adam Arrigo, co-founder and CEO, Wave

Alice Lloyd George: Welcome. Today’s guest is Adam Arrigo, co-founder and CEO of Wave — a live, interactive, immersive concert platform that is revolutionizing how artists express themselves and how fans connect. I’ve known Adam since we met in 2016 at Game Developers Conference. I loved his energy and vision. Full disclosure for my enthusiasm — I invested in the seed round of Wave, led the Series A and was on the board while at RRE Ventures. I’ve also invested in the company from my new fund Rogue, alongside somewhat bigger names like Justin Bieber, J Balvin and The Weeknd. It’s been incredible to be a small part of your journey and I’m thrilled to have you here today to share the story. …

Alex Bisignano, founder and CEO of Phosphorus

Alice Lloyd George: Welcome to the latest episode of Flux. This is the first episode recorded remotely during pandemic times, so it’s an experiment. Myself, my guest, and producer Dan are all distributed.

Alex Bisignano: It’s great to be here.

ALG: Alex studied molecular biology at Princeton, where we met. After graduating he founded a clinical genomics company called Recombine, which sold in 2016. He’s now building Phosphorus, a full stack genomics as a service company. So Phosphorus has been doing genetic testing for a while. But what’s really interesting is how the business has rapidly evolved to also fight the Coronavirus pandemic. In fact last week, Phosphorus’s at home saliva sample kit was approved by the FDA, which is huge. It is the second at-home saliva testing kit to be approved. Congratulations on the news, Alex. …

Andrea (Andy) Coravos founder of Elektra Labs

Alice Lloyd George: To kick off the year I have Andrea Coravos with us. Andy is the founder and CEO of Elektra Labs, a company focused on a future of consumer medicine that’s both data-driven and secure. The company just closed $2.9 million in seed funding. Over the last few years we’ve seen an explosion of wearables and sensors in healthcare. How accurate are these monitoring tools? And how secure are they from hackers? Elektra is cataloguing these distributed devices and has created benchmarks for pharma companies, doctors and device makers. In this conversation we get into everything from the evolving role of doctors to the rise of digital therapeutics and where the FDA fits in to all this. Andy spent time as an EIR at the FDA, so I couldn’t imagine a better guide to the brave new world of digital medicine. …

ALG: Welcome to the latest episode of Flux. I am excited to introduce LaTurbo Avedon. LaTurbo is an avatar and artist originating in virtual space, per her website and online statement.
