The BOM : Episode 27: A Front Row Seat to the Future With Chrissy Meyer


Chrissy Meyer discovered electrical engineering at age 9 and never looked back. Now a partner at Root Ventures, she helps provide initial funding for companies tackling new and complex technical projects.

We’ll talk about how the time she spent at Apple developing iconic products like the iPod Touch and the Apple Watch helped her develop the skill of building hardware that can scale, about her life-changing decision to drop everything and move to Santa Cruz in 2014 to work at a vehicle hardware startup, and about how she and four other engineers run Root Ventures. Plus, some pro tips for you engineers out there who have trouble getting excited about the non-technical sides of a company.
