The numbers surrounding type 2 diabetes are staggering. The WHO puts the number north of 400 million people globally, and it's just getting worse. Health experts agree that type 2 diabetes can largely be managed by a combination of nutrition, exercise, and medication. But what if it could be reversed completely? That's the claim, and the health moonshot, of our guest today, Sami Inkinen, CEO and Founder of Virta, which StartUp Health backed in 2020. Specifically, Inkinen and his team want to reverse type 2 diabetes in 100 million people by 2025. Before Virta, Inkinen disrupted the real estate industry by co-founding Trulia, which he sold to Zillow for $2.5B. Now with Virta, he's raised more than $350M to date, giving him the capital needed to take a great idea and scale it in unprecedented ways. --- Entrepreneurs: How to get investment from StartUp Health startuphealth.com Investors: How to invest in StartUp Health Moonshots healthmoonshots.com Want more content like this?

If you've been around the solar industry for long, you might recognize the name, Raffi Garabedian. If you don't, however, it's probably because you haven't studied the rise of one of the largest solar manufacturing brands in the world, First Solar, or perhaps you didn't sell against First Solar for years like Nico did in his past life! Raffi was the Chief Technology Officer at First Solar for the better part of the last decade, and recently retired to pursue “other interests”.  When he came out if stealth this year, we were surprised, and pleased, that it was in pursuit of another cutting edge technology scale-up endeavor - productizing an electrolyzer stack that can scale effectively for developers as many, like Intersect Power, scour the market for a partner to help convert those clean green electrons from massive solar and wind parks into Green Hydrogen.  Founded by experienced renewable energy technologists, Electric Hydrogen aims to cost-effectively decarbonize the massive industrial sectors that we all rely on. Raffi and team are thinking big and with urgency to decarbonize the physical world, and in today's part four of our Green Hydrogen series, he speaks to exactly where the market is going and what technological limitations have thus far limited scale thus far. If you're new to the Hydrogen discussion, you'll also appreciate Raffi's solar-specific perspective, detailed insight into the role of solar project developers, and critical thought around the barriers to scale presently for Green Hydrogen technology. It gets technical, but it's eye-opening, and it's a ton of value packed into an hour - fair warning, you may need to listen twice!   As in the last 3 episodes, Intersect Power's CEO, Sheldon Kimber, joins me for a “takeaways” session at the end of the episode so you can hear from a major clean infrastructure developer (Intersect has raised >$2.5B in financing) on where all this fits in a real-world application. This is part four of our Green Hydrogen Mini-Series.  You can follow along and learn more about our experts at www.mysuncast.com/hydrogen  Episode 1 - Nexus of Deep Decarbonization & “The Inevitability of Hydrogen” with Sheldon Kimber, CEO Intersect Power Episode 2 - The Green Hydrogen Opportunity with DNVs Global Energy Storage leader and Hydrogen Industry Veteran, Jason Goodhand Episode 3 - The Role of the Large Energy Companies, partnership opportunities, existing infrastructure, and more from a top 10 Oil & Gas analyst, RBC's Biraj Borkhataria Episode 4 - Role of New Technologies - with Raffi Garbedin, Co-founder of Electric Hydrogen (formerly CTO of First Solar)  Episode 5 - Decarbonizing Hard-to-abate Sectors Like Steel with Joachim Von Sheele, Global Director of Commercialization at the world's largest industrial gas company, Linde, who is also building the world's largest Electrolyzer.

[podcast_subscribe id="111"] In this episode, we will be going over concepts such as Margin of Safety, Mr. Market, and Compounding explained by Li Lu who is a manager at Himalaya Capital an $18.5B  fund out of which $2.1B is invested in the US markets. More importantly, he is a student of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger and one of the value investors we follow closely (link to 13F episode). He is hailed as the Chinese Warren Buffett. Here's the kicker. If you had invested $1000 with Li Lu in 1997, the total return as of today would have been $321,000 compared to $6,600 in S&P. So when he talks about value investing, we have to listen to him and today, we are going to do the same.. Who is Li Lu? Li Lu was born in China but had to flee the country as he was one of the protestors in the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. He fled to the US via France got a scholarship in Columbia. He got 3 degrees - economics, physics, and business. He didn't speak English, so learned that too.

On Black Friday, the biggest Holiday shopping day of the year, Ed and I thought it would be fun to review the book, Scroogenomics: Why You Shouldn't Buy Presents for the Holidays, by Joel Waldfogel, published in 2009. Waldfogel estimates that giving gifts nobody wants is a deadweight loss to the economy to the tune of approximately $12 Billion, mostly on credit cards. Money we don't have to buy things people don't want. As he writes, when you say to your mother-in-law, “A cribbage board. You shouldn't have.” Indeed, she shouldn't have, according to the author. As you prepare to go out and contribute to the expected $77.5B in the Holiday shopping spree, have a listen to a cautionary tale about the pitfalls of giving gifts.

Matt Mullengweg was a high school student looking for a better way to customize his blog when he discovered the open source software community and created the WordPress platform. A few years later, after dropping out of the University of Houston for a brief stint at CNET Networks, he founded Automattic, which he describes as a holding company for products such as WordPress.com, Jetpack, WooCommerce, Simplenote, Longreads and The Atavist. And just like over 40% of the web today, they all run on WordPress. Unlike many of its contemporaries, Automattic, which became a unicorn in 2014, hasn't gone the IPO route or been acquired. In February of 2021, the company closed a new primary funding round of $288M, and it continues to grow at a rapid pace. The company recently did a $250M share buyback, primarily targeted at current and former employees, at a $7.5B valuation. Matt continues to be energized by the open source community, which keeps him connected to users all over the globe. In fact, even before the pandemic made remote work the norm, Automattic was at the forefront of changing the way we work. A distributed company since day one, Automattic now employs 2000 people across 90 countries. Matt has influenced many leaders with his experiences of running an entirely remote business and keeping people connected, both technically and culturally. He shares more in this episode about what they've learned about remote work, and what they're still figuring out. *** If you enjoy the podcast, would you please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes?

After working in the industry for 30 years, and managing 5M square feet of assets worth $1.5B, what are the best pieces of advice out there? Chris Rising, co-founder of Rising Realty Partners, will share his extensive list of lessons learned. You can read this entire interview here: https://bit.ly/3qs9CY8 What are some of the scariest things besides COVID that you have dealt with? And how did you get out of them? I do have a couple of stories but one that sticks out, it still makes me want to throw up. We were buying an asset in Pasadena, it was in office, it was after the GFC, and I got introduced to a tech celebrity who was a wonderful person, I like him a lot. He made a ton of money twice but had never been in real estate. He had hired someone to do his real estate because he wanted to diversify. We found his project that we were buying, it was a bit distressed, we were bringing in at the time a competitor to We Work, so we were going to have some leasing and the whole deal made a lot of sense. I talked to him on the phone and I said, Look, we've been underwriting this, our money goes non refundable on Friday, but if you're not there, we're not going to go non refundable. And he said, Yeah, we're going to, I think, yes. It was mumbling "yes" and I said, okay, good. I remember calling the broker and saying, let's let the money go non refundable. It was a million dollar deposit. Literally about an hour after I called the broker and the escrow, I get a call from one of this guy's representative saying, We're not 100% sold, we're going to want to look at this deal longer. I said, no, no, no, that's not how real estate works, I just relied on a commitment from your boss, and I just put a million dollars at risk. He said, Oh, what are you talking about? You can't do that on that. I had a good 24 hours before the principal called me and said, Chris, I apologize, I didn't realize that, of course I'll honor what I'm going to do. What are the top three biggest lessons learned in your career? 1. The smartest person in the world is asking the most questions. And those questions sometimes come across as dumb questions. When I was young, I thought asking questions was annoying, and I shouldn't have a place for that, I should just be there and take my notes. What I realized is that people that aren't asking questions are not engaged, and probably not someone I want to do business with. 2. You don't have to be a jerk in business. However, you also have to understand that business isn't personal. That took me a long time. We're a family company, I want everything to be great. But as long as you treat people with respect, and you're ethical, and honest, that can happen in business and it's not personal, deals can blow up. I'm always amazed how people don't realize that a Pro Forma is just a guess. We don't have crystal balls. We try to make it as educated as possible, but recognizing that it's not personal allows you to sleep at night a little bit better 3. No matter how important all your business seems, and all that stuff, it's all very fleeting. If you're not enjoying your family, your life, it's a hard road to get to your 50s and realize that you don't have a great family, and you don't have a great thing. My father is 80 years old now, he pretty much moved on from the business. And I think of things that were so important 15 years ago, and they're just not now. The people that were important aren't in the business anymore.

What's it all about? Extreme fast charging of electric vehicles! I love batteries, and cars, and of course electric vehicles, and I've been watching Storedot for some time, and how they are creating batteries that can charge a car fully in 5 minutes. Now I don't mind a 30-40 minute charge whilst stopped at a service station, or trickle charging at home, but for some people it's still a barrier to entry, and faster charging will remove another excuse for adoption, and make it easier for us all. A great story of cross discipline research and collaboration. I hope you enjoy the episode. About Doron Myersdorf As the CEO of StoreDot, Doron brings vast experience in business and technology management to StoreDot. Prior to founding the company, he served as senior director of SanDisk SSD Business Unit (NASDAQ: SNDK), establishing and managing the division in Israel, building product strategy, marketing and business development, resulting in sales to leading laptop makers amounting to over $100M in revenue in under 3 years. Previously, he was VP Flash and Operations of systems, a flash memory global leader, where he managed strategic sourcing of $1B annually, resulting in annual revenue of over $1.5B. Doron's diverse record also includes founder and CEO of InnerPresence, a Silicon Valley security software company, and co-founder and VP business development of Siftology, a pioneer in interactive media search.

The company has revolutionized the conventional Li-ion battery by designing and synthesizing proprietary organic and inorganic compounds, making it possible to fully charge an EV in just five minutes – the same time it takes to refuel a conventional combustion engine vehicle.

Radical Design with the New Design Buyer featuring Detria Williamson, CMO of IDEO

Having the right elements and the right design is critically important to reaching the right people the right way. Detria Williamson, the CMO of IDEO, has years of experience working with clients to create meaningful impact through design, and throughout that time she has seen the world of design shift and the buyers' needs change. To meet those needs, Detria says it's all about listening carefully to what customers are saying. “The new design buyer, they're CMOs, they're CEOs, they're CTOs, they're Chief Diversity Officers. So we really needed to make sure that we were expanding our listening ability and in terms of making sure that our services were known to other leaders across the C-suite. Articulating all of our communities and deeply listening internally and across all those communities. On this episode of Marketing Trends, I was excited to hear more about what it takes to actively listen and respond in today's world. Plus, Detria and I got into how  she is helping to not just create more inclusivity, but allow it to become common practice across the industry. Detria has a revolutionary way of thinking about building her team of designers, seeking maximal creativity and diversity of ideas as the primary focus, and she explains it all in this episode. All this up next on Marketing Trends! Main TakeawaysInclusive Customer Experience: Break away from the idea that it's only important to focus on diversity and instead think more about inclusion. You can fake diversity but true inclusion is harder to imitate. The New Design Buyer: As design has become more democratized and the design-buyer has changed, it's more important than ever to tune into what they are asking for. Some of the leaders in these positions may not even know about the resources available to them, so there is an educational part of the process as well. Don't Over-stack: The explosion of MarTech tools means that marketing solutions are abundant but it's important to maintain a healthy balance in your budget to  ensure that you have the people and the resources to put it to use. Make sure you are constantly evaluating your tech stack based on what is performing and what is not. If something isn't performing, get rid of it in favor of a tool that is a driving force for your business.  Key Quotes“The most well-known digital tool that I created while I was there is called inclusive customer experience. It really fell out of a design-thinking workshop that we were doing. So again, design-thinking has always been this kind of three-way savior.  I would say through my career, it's a safety net.”“Diversity can be engineered, but inclusion can't.”“There are so many CMOs that don't have the luxury, the privilege, or sometimes even the awareness to have design built into their budgets. So when you say design for inclusion, that requires intention and requires you to allocate financial resources and team resources behind it. What you gain from it is beyond imagination. Having a more inclusive brand and a more inclusive experience has to be designed for.”“The new design buyer they're CMOs, they're CEOs, they're CTOs, they're chief diversity officers. So we really needed to make sure that we were expanding our listening ability and in terms of, you know, sort of making sure that our services were known to other leaders across the C-suite. So articulating all of our communities and deeply listening internally and across all those communities.” “Three things from a design perspective: One is designing for inclusion. Two is designing for privacy, and three is designing for experience. CMOs have to do that.”  “You can't hire your way through [inclusion]. I don't think that that's the only, or the quickest or most agile way to solve for CMOs answering to big challenges. Designing your way through them is the way forward.”“[I'm] not just looking at diversity in terms of gender diversity, in terms of ethnicity -- those to me are table stakes. When you hire radically inclusive leaders, those things just happen. They should happen automatically. But diversity in terms of, you know, how they gain their skills. If you go, and you actually recruit everybody out of San Francisco, that's grown up the same way that's come out of the same type of households. It's had the same track through the UC schools, — no knock against UC schools or the schools there — You're probably going to get people that approach a problem that come day to daya with the same sort of approach, they come with the same stories, the same way they attack problems. “You have to stay inspired and stay nourished. Because our agendas are wicked. They're just crazy. So that's one thing. It sounds again really simple, but if you want to stay confident, then you have to stay nourished. You have to stay inspired in order to maintain and sustain inspiration to your teams.““Make sure that your infrastructure is in place so that you can use MarTech to really align sales and marketing. It doesn't matter if you are a company of 20 or a company of 200,000, there's a stack out there for every size company. And MarTech is really the answer to aligning.” “There's new software platforms, there's so many, I call it the spaghetti stack. I think when you are trying to make that [MarTech] choice, it's really important to make sure that you have the support that you need from the new software tools. Make sure that you have that through line, especially I would say for smaller mid-sized companies.”BioCombine the outlook of a visionary with the rigor of a high-performing athlete and you'll begin to get a sense of IDEO CMO Detria Williamson. She has spent more than 20 years as an innovative brand experience marketer who gives companies a brave push forward, bringing the discipline and mindset needed to create new brand ecosystems while building on the resonance and value the brand already has to its audiences.It's an effort underpinned by two core beliefs: that focusing on diversity and having a growth mindset are important but far too narrow alone, and that inclusive experience is the center of gravity for a brand. This has led Detria to create the ICX (inclusive customer experience) approach. It's a way to integrate all elements of the customer experience—how people are targeted, how products are designed, and how audiences and communities are shaped and formed—and to make sure the thinking is inclusive.While you are likely to hear her quip “we're good to grow,” Detria believes a change mindset is the true requisite for new-age marketers. It's one that is fixated on openness, not daunted by curveballs, and totally liberated through things that are new. How that has come to life: As Global Business Director for Emirates Airlines, Detria spearheaded transitioning their multi-million-dollar sports sponsorship budget from the time-tested practice of logos on jerseys to cultivating global sports communities using the power of media, video, digital, and sports celebrities.She joined IDEO as CMO with an outlook shaped by her experiences living and working in the US, London, Singapore, and the Middle East. It has given her a strong basis from which to build international teams with a global mindset, enabling brands to reach audiences and form communities across geographies and markets. With a proven record of developing high-value, high-impact brand experiences, as of 2020, Detria has grown over $5B in brand equity for clients across a variety of industries and categories, including Google, Capital Group, Discovery, and AT&T.To learn more, click here: {{URL of detail page on found on www.mission.org}}---Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

He was traveling with a team of lawyers and doctors to view the horrific evidence that Texaco, an oil giant since bought by Chevron, had poisoned a huge swath of the Ecuadorian Amazon during oil drilling in the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. What they saw were the results of a massive and man-made environmental disaster that poisoned the water, earth and food of tens of thousands of people. Worst of all, the evidence indicated it was done deliberately as part of an engineering plan to save $3 per barrel. This horror was not an accident.   Ultimately, Steven led a team of lawyers in procuring a $9.5B judgement against Chevron that was affirmed by the Ecuadorian Supreme Court. Yet that was not the end of the story. For Chevron - while note even arguing the veracity of the disaster - chose not to pay the judgment. Instead, they chose to come after the lead lawyer who held them accountable: namely, Steven Donziger. In Donziger's words, “The company's goal is to silence my advocacy, bankrupt my family, and intimidate activists and environmental allies.”   Donziger has now spent more than 780 days under house arrest. He stands to be sentenced on Oct. 1 for contempt of court charges stemming from his refusal to turn over to Chevron his cell phone and computer containing confidential data on environmental activists here and in Ecuador. The Department of Justice having chosen not even to pursue the case, it was turned over- incredibly -to Chevron itself to prosecute.   Most Americans would not believe that here in the United States, a corporation could literally use an American court to criminally prosecute its critics. And yet that is exactly what has happened: a show trial that leaves an American environmental lawyer punished harshly and at risk of imprisonment, for the not-to-be-tolerated crime of standing up to Chevron.   Attorney General Merrick Garland has not intervened in this private corporate prosecution, although he should. The request has been simply that he return the case from Chevron's law firm to the US justice system. He has not chosen to do so despite pleas from Senators, Congresspeople, legal groups and Nobel Laureates. And this point you and I have to speak up, and speak up loudly - for justice, for the earth, and for Steven Donziger.   Follow Marianne on social media:   Twitter: https://twitter.com/marwilliamson   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/williamsonmarianne   Instagram: https://instagram.com/mariannewilliamson
