In the mid 1990s, a group of MIT students stunned casinos by winning extraordinary amounts of money playing Blackjack. These students, utilizing a data-driven card counting strategy, gained notoriety and became the subject of acclaimed books and films such as Bringing Down the House and 21. One of the team members, Jeff Ma, went on to become a 4x founder and an executive at Twitter before joining Microsoft as VP of Startups. Jeff joined hosts Scott and Andrei to describe his key learnings from building and exiting several successful companies. The conversation covers misconceptions around funding as an end goal, aligning perspectives between enterprises and startups, and the most exciting areas in tech.   Here are some quick takeaways:   Aligning perspectives to avoid friction should be the first consideration when entering a partnership When partnering with an enterprise, startup founders often underestimate the sheer scale that they are dealing with- fully utilizing their resources is not a trivial task The size of large enterprises can hinder rapid implementation of initiatives; however, it also makes accomplishments more rewarding Starting a company with the hope of being acquired is the wrong mindset

If you're listening to this episode at the time that it's being released, and you're thinking about work, you're probably thinking about returning to a physical office in this new land of the Delta variant, or perhaps you're looking for a job, or you're figuring out how to get a new job because you're done with the one that you have. Or maybe you don't want to talk or think about work at all. But the reality is - we all understand work dynamics and most of us cannot escape the reality that we do need to belong to a group that provides us with money to make a living.  So here's our question: what happens when you make a mistake at work?  What if we told you that there's another way to do business - one that focuses on love?  We were convinced that this might work after we spoke with our guests today - and read their book. Mohammed Anwar and Jeff Ma are executives at Softway, a company whose mission is to bring humanity back to the workplace. In their book, Love as a Business Strategy, they break down how this is possible. After you've heard what they have to say, here's what we'd like you to do: tell all your friends to listen (you knew that was coming!). Then buy their book from their website, and download the free resources too. Read it, and share it with your teams - both at work, and in other spheres. And then let us know what most resonated with you by emailing us at hello@dearwhitewomen.com.  Let's put humanity first at work and see where that gets us.   Have questions, comments, or concerns? Email us at hello@dearwhitewomen.com What to listen for: The major dysfunction in Softway's company culture that led them to make a shift The biggest resistance to the idea of love in the workplace What it takes for leadership to lead a massive shift in workplace culture How using love as a business strategy affected their relationships outside the workplace About our guests: Jeff Ma Jeff spent the first decade of his career working in the video game industry, from game testing to project management. He continues to bring his love for games into everything he does, from playing with his kids to training and coaching leaders. Jeff has a burning passion for board games, magic tricks, Agile, and growth mindsets. He was born and raised in Texas, where he and his beautiful wife, Maggie, dote heavily on their wonderful children, Cody and Penelope. Mohammad Anwar Mohammad is the youngest of five children and was born and raised in Saudi Arabia by Indian parents from Bengaluru. He graduated from the University of Houston (Go Coogs) with a BS in Computer Science and started Softway at twenty, where he still serves as the President and CEO. Mohammad lives in Sugar Land, Texas, with his amazing wife Yulia, a Russian diver and five-time Olympic medalist, and his beautiful children, Sufia and Moshin. In his spare time, he enjoys fitness, watching college sports, and butchering American idioms.   Where to pre-order Dear White Women: Let's Get (Un)comfortable Talking About Racism: https://thecollectivebook.studio/dear-white-women Like what you hear?  Don't miss another episode and subscribe!
