FW3: Trustrace & Aton Osika
Anton Osika, co-founder of Depict, speaking at Latitude59

Last week, I was blessed to see this screenshot of encouragement from Anton Osika:

Anton is one of Europe’s brilliant minds. Before starting two of Sweden's most valuable AI companies, he designed algorithms for nuclear physicists & hedge funds. Today, he’s the co-founder and CTO of Depict, a 2x Y Combinator Top Company that has raised $20m from EQT Ventures & other global investors.

Anton and I spent much of this past week in Tallinn at Latitude59, where we spoke alongside fellow SFC members Sebnem Erener LL.M. and Magnus Hambleton. Anton gave the keynote address at our event titled “Not Afr(ai)d: Unleashing human potential with AI.”

At the end of his talk, Anton said this: “Sit down with someone you don't know yet. Figure out how you can help each other reach your goals. Build a network of ambitious people like us–-people that can build the future we want to live in.”

Here at Founder’s Coral, we’re building that bright future by bringing ambitious people together and changing their lives for good. We do this by building healthy habits, intentional relationships, and a strong community that can satisfy the truly human desires to be curious, creative & effective.

If you’re interested in joining a more intimate community of like-minded founders & startup executives, check out our concept called “Growth Leaders.” It’s a place for effective entrepreneurs and their teams to learn and grow together. You can submit your profile here.
