Petra Thiel

“A venture capitalist and hedge fund manager, Thiel
invested in numerous hypercorp start-ups and played
a key role in expanding transhumanity’s presence
in the solar system as well as capitalizing on breakthroughs in various transhumanist technologies. After
founding Extropy Now, Thiel brought in other investors and hatched the plan to establish Extropia.
Thiel has infamously claimed that the inner system
is a lost cause, pulling most of her investments from
non-Extropian corps (burning several bridges with
former hyperelite allies) and increasing her stakes in
numerous Extropian technology corporations. She has
recently taken an active interest in extrasolar exploration, but remains a visible figurehead and active
participant in Extropia’s affairs. She has raised some
controversy by claiming that the male sex is no longer
needed in transhuman society, arguing that male
aggression and patriarchal tendencies are a detriment
to our continued development as a species. She also
regularly criticizes other autonomist tendencies and
has had several heated public arguments with Carson
Tucker about the uselessness of being part of the
Autonomist Alliance.”
