A podcast about pivoting.

CTRL SHIFT is a podcast about people who changed the world by changing their perspective. Every start-up goes through periods of being stuck. We believe the key factor in successfully overcoming them is being able to shift: focus, goals, approach, or even to shift altogether to another area. In each episode we tell the story of a shift that we think is a good example - if not, then at least a good lesson for entrepreneurs. We explore all the surprising twists and turns along the way, how talent in one field can turn out to be just what’s needed in another, how to make a successful U-turn when needed; and how, at the end of the day, adaptability is crucial in both business and life.

    The story of the game theory algorithm that found itself on the operating table

    The story of the game theory algorithm that found itself on the operating table

    In the 60s two mathematicians came up with an algorithm. The scientists jokingly suggested it should be used for matchmaking but never actually proposed a practical application. Half a century later, another scientist came up with an unconventional use case for the algorithm and proceeded with its implementation. So how did an abstract game theory model lead to a revolution in transplantology and thousands of lives saved?

    The story of mass migration from science to business

    The story of mass migration from science to business

    Do you know what it takes to become a scientist? You spend at least 9 years in a closed community that lives by a particularly rigid set of rules and ethical principles — it’s almost the way of the warrior. Then, if you make the cut, you become a domain expert in a very narrow field. Nevertheless, it’s not uncommon to leave the scientific field after only a few years. So what happens before the leap?

    Libo/Libo studio and Humbleteam are launching a podcast, all about pivoting. Our host, design consultant Anatoliy Gromov, knows firsthand how important it is to be able to shift, be it focus, goals, approach, or perspective. Every two weeks he is going to tell you the story of a professional who managed to do that in an exemplary way. You’ll hear about:
    - a scientist who worked on IVF but ended up inventing exactly the opposite — the Pill
    - an entrepreneur who once met a homeless guy, bought him a cup of coffee, then quit his job and ended up getting hundreds of people off the streets
    - a psychologist who wanted to figure out the role of luck in life so she deep dived into the world of poker, winning 150k$ in less than two years.
    Episodes come out every two weeks on Thursdays.
