LESSONS FROM THE GLOBAL INNOVATORS IN BUSINESS SERIES
If you could solve one problem for the world, what would it be?
For many of us, money is no longer the end goal - Instead, it is doing something that will leave the greatest possible change for the world. When the focus of your career shifts from pursuing stability to pursuing impact, a whole new world opens up.
This book talks to founders who did just that, putting impact above all else: one created a multimillion-dollar company that built the first drone delivery ecosystem in Africa to help deliver critical medical supplies (Zipline), and another took out retirement savings to build what became an alternative meat empire (Beyond Meat). Others in this book found the cure to the problem they sought to address through cryptocurrency, cell-based meat, AI, or impact investing. Through their words, we learn what it takes to build impact through your career. What do these solutions look like if they work? And what did the people behind them do and learn to get here?
