Cool Dad Job: Founder, Walker & Company Brands, Inc.
Cool Dad Vibe: Mission-Driven Entrepreneur
Cool Dad Bona Fides: Tristan Walker dresses like a Silicon Valley bro and has the resume — Twitter, Foursquare, Andreessen Horowitz — of a Palo Alto climber. So why is he on this list? Because Walker is one of the founders of Code 2040, a non-profit that helps minority college students secure jobs in the tech industry, and is now the founder of Walker & Company Brands, which aims to create health and beauty products for minority communities historically underserved by companies in the space. Its first effort, Bevel, is a shaving system designed to help black men prevent razor burn; a common annoyance. When he’s not busy making moves, Walker is at home with his wife and his son, Avery James.
