Keith Rabois: Miami, Pirate Founders, and Why Stanford Doesn’t Matter

Keith Rabois, a venture capitalist who recently moved from Founders Fund to Khosla Ventures, has expressed his commitment to building Miami as a tech hub. Rabois aims to have three or four “impressive, iconic companies” established in Miami within the next ten years. He cites Miami’s desirable lifestyle, along with the need for angel capital, as reasons why the city has the potential to become a major tech hub. Rabois expresses a contrarian view that Stanford University is not relevant to the history of Silicon Valley and prefers to fund “pirate” founders over Stanford graduates. He also discusses his love for high-intensity interval training workout Barry’s Bootcamp and emphasizes its efficiency, efficacy, and musicality.
