Before founding Non-trivial, Peter McIntyre co-founded a nonprofit that raises >$4 million per year for effective global health charities, ran operations at one of the most successful crypto startups, and created an educational website that has been read by over half a million people.
Peter spent most of the last 5 years at 80,000 Hours, where he advised hundreds of graduates from top universities on how to find a fulfilling, impactful career.
But he started out in medical school. After he discovered the ideas in this course, he realised he could have a much more scalable impact outside of seeing patients – but by that point, he'd spent 7 years studying to be a doctor. He created this course so you don't have to make the same mistakes he did.
