We’re like a flying machine company

Max Olson

Peter Thiel famously stated, “we wanted flying cars, instead we got 140 characters.” Thiel needs to look outside of Silicon Valley all the way to a small port town in New Zealand, Marsden Point. It is here amongst a single lumberyard, dairy farm and port, a small group of engineers are creating a new category of travel. FreightFish is an autonomous hydrofoil shipping company, and their state of the art boats glide above water at speeds once thought impossible for a freight ship.

In this episode of Wild Hearts, founder Max Olson talks about how he went from failing papers in his first year of university to starting a company, and FreightFish’s long voyage ahead.
