My next guest, Carolina Reis Oliveira, is the co-founder & CEO of Oneskin, a biotech company developing solutions to target anti-aging at the molecular level. Carolina holds a Ph.D. in stem cell biology.  OneSkin is leading the development of the first anti-senescence topical product designed to promote skin health and strength. Carolina has been actively engaged in the longevity ecosystem in the Bay Area.

We talked about:

  • How she journeyed from a small town of 7000 people in Brazil to Silicon Valley. (and why Peter Diamandis is betting big on her stemcells)
  • How the academic salary cap pushed this Brazilian rebel to come to America and form her VC-backed startup.
  • How she unifies her scientific training and spiritual faith to (confidently) navigate startup uncertainties
  • The secret advantage Carolina didn’t know she had that would save most entrepreneurs years of pain.
  • How she and her 3 cofounders engineered healthy founder dynamics and workplace culture for the last 5 years
  • And finally their unique inside-out approach to anti-aging that’ll help us live to 120
