    Leveling the (Funding) Playing Field (ft. Andrew D'Souza, Clearco)

    Leveling the (Funding) Playing Field (ft. Andrew D'Souza, Clearco)

    For years now I’ve heard about the problems with funding entrepreneurs and how the funding landscape is broken. To that end, I wanted to speak with  Andrew D'Souza. He’s the co-founder and CEO of Clearco, the world’s largest e-comm investor and unicorn valued at $2B. After years of witnessing founder challenges in the VC world, Andrew saw an opportunity to modernize the funding system. Traditional access to funding is biased, based on assets, connections, and exponential forecasts. Clearco is attempting to remove those barriers. 
    I wanted to talk to Andrew about his mission to democratize capital, how the funding landscape will evolve in the coming years and how Clearco uses data to create an unbiased approach to funding.

    Socially Conscious Business Leadership (ft. Simon Mainwaring)

    Socially Conscious Business Leadership (ft. Simon Mainwaring)

    I’ve followed today’s guest for years. Not in a scary, stalker-ish way...I just have a lot of respect for the guy, so much so that I quoted him in my first book, Going Social, eight years ago. Simon Mannering is the Founder and CEO of We First, a strategic consultancy that turns companies into movements by empowering their brands to lead with a purpose larger than themselves. He’s also the author of LEAD WITH WE: The Business Revolution That Will Save Our Future, which came out yesterday!

    Lead With We shows how all of us—from the CEOs of the biggest corporations to exciting entrepreneurs to the everyday consumer—can make more environmentally friendly, purpose-driven, and positively impactful choices in service of everyone’s future. I talk to Simon about how consumers can help businesses more accountable to make better decisions, specific ways companies can not only do less harm but more good, and why sustainability is at such a critical juncture right now. I think you’ll learn a lot from Simon in this episode.

    From Material Sciences to Talent Recruitment: How the Pandemic Changed Everything

    From Material Sciences to Talent Recruitment: How the Pandemic Changed Everything

    COVID has changed the world to such an extent over the past year and a half, and of course it’s not something that anyone would ever wish on society, but there have been some interesting developments - a lot of them positive. One of those innovations comes from SiO2, a little-known material science company from Alabama that received a $143 million investment from the US government to tackle the vaccine vial shortage. To date, they have provided the government with vials for over 100 million covid vaccine doses. I spoke to the company’s president, Lawrence Ganti [at the 1:01 mark], about why the future of drugs will be biological — and the long-term positive effects that COVID could bring to pharma and life sciences. 
    My conversation with Lawrence got me thinking about the new kinds of jobs that might have been created on account of the pandemic, which then had me thinking about how companies are finding the talent they need in a post-COVID world. To help clue us in on that front, I turned to Evan Sohn [at the 11:11 mark]. He’s the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Recruiter.com, an on-demand recruiting platform that combines AI and video job-matching technology with the world's largest network of small and independent recruiters. We talked about how the pandemic changed how companies recruit, what the post-COVID world of work looks for job candidates, and much more.
