Bryan Johnson

Co-Founder and General Partner

In 2014, Bryan invested $100M to start OS Fund, which invests in scientist entrepreneurs predictably engineering atoms, molecules, organisms and complex systems. OS Fund companies have created self-fertilizing crops, are storing information in DNA to make biology your next hard drive, and designing proteins that nature never got around to over a few billion years of evolution.

In 2016, Bryan founded Kernel, investing $100M to build a next generation, non-invasive mind/body/machine/interface (MBMI). We can count our steps and calories, quantity our sleep and sequence our microbiome, but in our day to day lives, our brain is inaccessible: his team is working to change that.

Bryan previously founded Braintree–which he sold to PayPal in 2013 for $800M–and is a graduate of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
