Six years ago, tech entrepreneur Tristan Walker left Wall Street for Silicon Valley with a goal in mind.
"I saw that there were other 24 year olds, not only making millions of dollars, but also fundamentally changing the world," the 30-year old told CNBC's On the Money in an interview. "I knew I wanted to be part of that and I tried everything I could to be a part of it."
After graduating from Stanford Business School, Walker started his successful rise through the often insular world of Silicon Valley. After stops at Foursquare and venture capital giant Andreessen Horowitz, the New York City native founded his own startup, Walker & Company Brands.
He's launched his company in the tech capital with a new product that, at first glance, seems low-tech and old-fashioned: A new single-blade razor.
Called "Bevel", the razor was designed with a specific benefit for a target audience, those prone to shaving irritation and razor bumps.
"Up to 80 percent of black men and women have this issue because we have course curly hair," Walker said. "And 30 percent of men and women of other races have this issue as well."
