Interview Gems:

  • What it means to be an innovator in an emerging field
  • Why it’s important to become very comfortable with risk-taking – being able to look at existing challenges with fresh eyes and also becoming very comfortable with what you don’t know
  • What business comes down to at the end of the day – people and how to marry a new understanding of what impact truly means with social return
  • The value of not taking yourself or your subject too seriously – if it is truly your life’s work, you have to be patient with yourself and allow the process to be refined.
