The Repository of Ill-Advised Ventures

Is a personal collection of items from times people should have known better. An assortment of totems from fraudulent, silly, or just plain incompetent ventures, especially around Silicon Valley.

The RIAV was born in 2015 or 2016 when Theranos began its demise. I was looking for a Theranos hoodie and found a centrifuge instead.

Please reach out if you might be willing to sell or loan an item to The Repository.

Especially looking for:
  • - Items from Clinkle
  • - An MLB Umpire jersey with an FTX patch
  • - A real Theranos Edison machine
  • - Items from Frank
  • - SVB stuff
  • - You get the point.
