Featured Guests: Pietro Novelli and Kunaal Chande
The topic of Web3 and the Metaverse has come up several times on the podcast, and on this episode, we're highlighting the work of Mintouge. Joe is joined by co-founders, Pietro Novelli and Kunaal Chande. Pietro and Kunaal discuss how their startup connects luxury brands to their customers and how Mintouge enables brands to deliver customer service post-sale, digitizing physical assets and communicating via a product’s digital twin.
Featured Guest: Jim Hunter
There’s that old line, 'Those who can, do; those who can't, teach', but that’s a bit of a fallacy, and Joe's guest this week is proving that. His name is Jim Hunter, and he’s been teaching entrepreneurs for decades at the Lubar School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. But over the course of his entrepreneurial career, he’s founded and run multiple companies and held the roles of CFO, vice president, and director, among others. Jim has an interesting idea; he believes that college is the perfect time to start your business, and he’s written Graduate a CEO to explain why.
Featured Guest: Shreya Patel
The influence of art in society has been discussed since the first brush strokes were ever made. But since then, much has been debated like Elvis’ swiveling hips, violence in video games, or sexuality on TV. But the course of time has proven that art does have a positive impact on the world. And Joe's guest this week, Shreya Patel, is proving that by creating content that's educational and entertaining, she can empower underdogs everywhere. Shreya is an actress, filmmaker, and the founder of Window Dreams Productions, the award-winning production house that specializes in impact production.

Featured Guest: Linda Fitz-Alan
Back in 2011, Tom Cruise went to the UAE to scale the side of the world’s tallest building for one of his Mission Impossible movies. And in 2015, Joe's guest pulled off an equally daunting feat; Linda Fitz-Alan went to the UAE to launch an English Common Law System in Abu Dhabi. Linda is the Registrar and Registrar and Chief Executive of Abu Dhabi Global Market Courts, where she leads the administration and operations of the Court and delivery of the Court’s comprehensive digital services and unique eCourts Platform.

I learned about this podcast when they asked me to do an interview about reverse logistics. After doing the interview with them, I started listening every day on my way to and from work...I really like the way Gregg gets his guests talking and the way he asks the same kinds of questions I would want to ask. It's not all business, because he digs in and gets to the human side of the story too. Thanks for the great content, keep up the good work!
