    Venesa Klein - More Women At C-Suite Level, How To Get Headhunted, & Overthinking! - EP198

    Welcome to 1% Better and the interview with Venesa Klein.

    Since 2007, Venesa Klein has helped some of the world's most successful companies build out the critical leadership teams that drive their success

    As Partner at Calibre One, she successfully places C-suite and functional VP level leaders across a range of consumer internet, e-commerce, CPG, and category-defining technology companies. Klein also founded the company's Purpose-Driven Practice, which focuses on placing executives in growing organizations seeking to create innovation with meaningful impact.

    Prior to joining Calibre One, Klein was the senior recruiter at MarketTools, a market research, and technology company, where she was responsible for full-cycle, international, executive recruiting across the company.

    Klein was first introduced to corporate recruiting as a consultant at Google where she was recruited to build out their internal executive search function. She began her executive search career at The Pacific Firm, a premier Bay Area boutique firm.

    Her practice concentrated on the recruitment of executives for venture capital funded start-ups and established high-growth companies.

    Outside of work, Klein holds leadership roles within a number of animal welfare, environmental and educational charities. Her commitment to philanthropy and her two young children keep her quite busy.

    I hope you enjoy this wide ranging conversation with Venesa.

    Xander Schultz - Impact Investing, Influencing Social Justice, & Meditating in Virtual Reality - EP194

    Xander Schultz - Impact Investing, Influencing Social Justice, & Meditating in Virtual Reality - EP194

    Welcome to the podcast – 1% Better.

    I’ve talked to a broad range of successful individuals over the last 4 or so years doing the podcast. And everyone, I’ve learned something new.

    Many entrepreneurs have been on the show too and investors. My guest today, Xander Schultz, is both of these. He’s also an philanthropist. Which is also not unique. But what is very different about Xander is his story.

    I’m delighted to welcome Xander to 1% Better today.

    After facing adversity early - his Olympic champion father Dave was murdered when he was just nine - Xander Schultz found purpose as an activist focused on maximizing the freedom of oppressed people and elevating changemakers.

    As a tech entrepreneur in Silicon Valley, Xander was on the founding teams of two consumer social productivity technology companies Complete and Kifi, which was acquired in 2016 by Google.

    Following his exit at Kifi, Xander committed his entrepreneurial and philanthropic efforts to social justice, co-founding the refugee aid organization When We Band Together with his wife Zoë.

    They launched the organization after spending time volunteering on Lesvos in 2015.

    The organization is dedicated to ensuring displaced people have community resources, safe spaces, and positive places where they can thrive.

    Xander supports and leads initiatives that emphasize dignity and prioritize the most vulnerable.

    Xander is the host of What We Don't Know Podcast WWDK) where he discusses issues that define our time with leading change-makers such as Rashad Robinson, Andrew Yang, and Baz Schreidinger.

    In 2020 he founded “Defeat by Tweet” - a donation-based initiative raising money for the Justice Fund, Black-led political organizers in swing states, by using Trump’s tweets against him.

    Xander’s two great projects right at this moment (TIMELY) are Defeat by Tweet, now having raised $2million dollars since launch in June to get Trump out of office, and When We Band Together, which is currently raising money to provide supplies to the 13,000 refugees displaced by the Moria Refugee Camp fire in Lesvos.
