This week Chris Massey of Craft Ventures and David Mack (D-Mack) guest host the show and interview David Owen of Shef.

Shef is a startup based out of San Francisco that allows consumers to have authentic, homemade meals cooked by local, certified chefs delivered right to their home. 

Chris and D-Mack speak with David about:

  • How David decided to make the move to in-house government relations;
  • What it was like working for AirBnB in the early days of the company;
  • How the '08 financial crisis and smartphones paved the way for the creation of companies like Lyft, AirBnB, and Eaze;
  • How Shef is navigating the patchwork quilt of food-related regulations across the country
