In this episode, the host John Siracusa had a remote chat with Renaud Laplanche, Co-founder & CEO of Upgrade.  Renaud was previously CEO of Lending Club where he is also a co-founder.  In this episode we go in depth about his journey from corporate lawyer, to MatchPoint (acquired by Oracle) and Lending Club which was created in a time when peer to peer lending was not even an idea.  Today at Upgrade he’s creating something that is not obvious yet.  Throughout the interview Renaud realizes that he loves to create non-obvious things that change industries.
