Sam Gerstenzang

It's pronounced Ger-sten-zang.

I'm a Principal at Sidewalk Labs, where we create companies to make cities better.

Most recently, I ran the product, design and data teams at Imgur. Before that, I was on the investment team at a16z. I previously held various engineering and product roles and graduated from Stanford.

I do product, strategy, and teams. Follow me on Twitter, Medium or LinkedIn.

I think about augmented cognition, cities, software and economic development, lemons, collective intelligence and communities, organizational structure, and well-crafted furniture.

I'd love to hear from you.
