Back in March we caught up with Brandon Leonardo, who cofounded Instacart with Max Mullen after meeting on the Silicon Valley bus. Here’s part of the story:

I became the first engineer at AngelList as a result of the inaugural StartupBus event and an introduction from Elias to Naval. While at AngelList, I got to know Apoorva Mehta because we worked in the same co-working space. I met Max Mullen a few months later while conducting the Silicon Valley StartupBus. A couple years later the three of us started working together on Instacart.
