S3 E4: Yoshi Yokokawa, Alpaca

Code Story

Born and raised in Japan, Yoshi Yokokawa started his career at Leimen Brothers in the US. In doing so, he was exposed to the fragility of the economies, yet saw how all things were connected and potential for areas of automation - IE, where things didn't need a human hand. A marathon runner, triathlete and yoga teacher, he attempts to understand himself physically, spiritually and mentally. When he set out on a venture of his own, he originally started building deep neural net prediction models for trading funds and hedge funds. In doing so, he quickly figured out that in order to scale this quickly, his solution would need to work with existing brokerage firms and banks. It was at this pain point that he decided to pivot and build Alpaca, the best way for developers to trade US stocks through an API.Linkshttps://alpaca.markets/https://www.linkedin.com/in/yoshiyokokawa/https://www.crunchbase.com/person/yoshi-yokokawahttps://twitter.com/iyoshyoshi?lang=enLeave us a review on Apple Podcasts Amazing tools we use:If you want the best publishing platform for your podcast, with amazing support & people - use Transistor.fmWant to record your remote interviews with class?
