The Importance of Awkward Conversations

Josh Giegel, Virgin Hyperloop
In conversation with: Emily Ma, Stanford University

Co-founder Josh Giegel tells the story of the acrimonious break-up of Virgin Hyperloop’s founding team and shares the lessons he learned from the experience. Giegel reflects on the team’s reluctance to discuss important but difficult topics like roles, responsibilities, and compensation, and advises founders to address awkward issues early and often.
