Max Olson

I’m an engineer, investor, and designer. I run a small fund that invests in early-stage startups and public companies. I’m an investor and founding employee at Mashgin, where we’re building the future of retail checkout. I live in California and grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In 2013 I worked with Warren Buffett to publish "Berkshire Hathaway Letters to Shareholders", a compilation of 50 years of his full letters. Explorist Productions was originally started to publish the book and has since evolved to publish other progress-related media.
