While you may know hm by his Reddit user name: u/kn0thing, Ohanian does know what he’s doing online. Look at his snoovatar (above), it’s a hat-tip to Robin Hood, who, besides being a good dancer, was a champion of the people. In Ohanian’s case, “the people” are the millions of Reddit users and aspiring tech entrepreneurs he interacts with.
He’s invested in and advises over 100 tech startups, helped launch Hipmunk and Breadpig, and is currently a partner at Y Combinator. Similarly, he’s the best-selling author of Without Their Permission, a memoir, and was the showrunner of Small Empires, which took viewers behind the scenes of NYC startups.
