Rodolfo’s Manual of Operations

Rodolfo’s Manual of Operations

📍 Based in London

I’m on Mastodon and Twitter. My email is my first name at

I have founded a new tech startup in 2021, it’s in stealth, it’s about hardware and software, and we already have VC funding.

I have a weird background of AI, semiconductors, the video games industry, cybersecurity, and defense tech. I do not understand anything about life sciences and biotech. Within these boundaries I am happy to help anyone that is starting their company, especially younger people without capital and access to an investor network, contact me and I will go the extra mile to find a bit of my time to help you.

I have been blogging since 2001 on Whilst in Arrakis, but if I write two posts a year it’s a miracle and it’s mostly musings. The corporate stuff is usually on Medium.

I am an entrepreneur-in-residence at Conception X and assist PhD students become venture scientists and start companies based off their research. We only invest inside our cohort in partnership with XTX, and I do not make angel investments.

I am also humbled to have been asked to mentor at Deepcore (SoftBank’s deep tech accelerator in Tokyo) but despite my enthusiasm they are ok with zoom calls and don’t pay me to travel there.

I play Europa Universalis 4 and I think you should, too.


I have copied the idea of a manual from Syndey who is clearly so much better than I am at this
