How do your favorite consumer products measure up? Lizzie Horvitz has been passionate about sustainability since the age of 16 when she lived off the grid. It was there that, depending only on wind energy and rainwater, she saw the solution of climate change before fully understanding the problem. She later worked in supply chain and sustainability at Unilever and then became Chief Operating Officer at Muuse, a startup that aims to mitigate single-use plastics in the to-go industry. Now the founder of Finch, Lizzie Horvitz and her team are decoding sustainability, to help consumers like you and I make more informed buying decisions. In this episode, we explore the six key factors in scoring consumer products for sustainability, how the consumer market is changing, and what Lizzie has learned as a startup entrepreneur who is changing the way consumers purchase. What We Discuss in this Episode Defining sustainability Focusing on a bright future vs fear and shame The six key factors that determine sustainability A holistic view on human wellbeing How Finch gathers consumer product data Surprising consumer product categories that are problematic Small changes that make a big impact What stops people from acting on sustainability Are metal straws actually better than plastic straws?

Hello, and welcome back to Equity, the podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.Here's what we got into on our Monday episode, a weekly kick-off of sorts:Stocks are mixed around the world, up in parts of Asia and Europe, but down sharply in the United States to start the week.Crypto prices have recovered modestly, but remain sharply depressed from the last week. The FTX damage continues to reverberate.Speaking of crypto, the FTX saga continues. The latest includes a hack on Friday, and a massive emission of new FTT tokens that was so poorly received that major exchanges pulled deposits of the now-radioactive security.All the exchange drama has led to other exchanges taking fire, and Coinbase looking great in contrast.Elsewhere in tech-land: Fake meat raises a bunch more money, Klarna is doing some neat product work, India has unbanned VLC, which was a head-scratcher to begin with, and e-commerce infra startups are still raising capital!And that's all the time we had this morning! More Wednesday!Equity drops at 7 a.m. PT every Monday and Wednesday, and at 6 a.m. PT on Fridays, so subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify and all the casts. TechCrunch also has a great show on crypto, a show that interviews founders, one that details how our stories come together, and more!

In this special edition of Immigration Law for Tech Startups, I'm joined by expert attorney Lynda Hagerty as we discuss the mass layoffs in Silicon Valley. Thousands of laid-off individuals are on work visas and it's definitely a stressful time. We're going to talk about all of the ramifications and what all this means for the state of immigration in the United States. Twitter has laid off nearly 50% of its workforce and many names in tech are expected to follow, including big tech companies like Meta, Microsoft, and Intel. So far 416 startups and tech-oriented companies in the U.S. have laid off individuals between April and October compared to only 20 in the first quarter. There are also several hiring freezes taking place at Apple and Amazon, as well as a looming crypto winter with NFT and cryptocurrency exchange marketplaces like Robinhood and Coinbase, letting go of 20% to 30% of their workforce.

It's hard to believe that there's less than two months left in 2022. That means 2023 is just around the corner. Since the new year is approaching fast, on this episode I talk about three things you can do now to be sure your Patent Strategy is off to a good start in 2023. The three things I recommend are: Check for patent filing deadlines. Educate your team regarding how to identify inventions AND encourage them to submit their ideas. Create a group of people to evaluate the inventions submitted by your team. I discuss all three of these activities in today's episode. If you're ready to start building (or expanding) your patent portfolio in 2023, now is a great time to get started. “There are three activities that automatically trigger a 12-month patent filing deadline in the United States.” – Steve Sponseller Questions?

In this week's Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I am joined by former U.S. diplomat and State Department Consular Officer, Mandy Feuerbacher, to talk about how you can navigate visa interviews. Mandy currently runs Argo Visa, a startup consisting of a team of 25 other former consular officers who work with immigration professionals and individuals seeking visas to guide them through the consular visa interview process. As consulates are opening up again, more and more in-person interviews are happening. Although only a very small percentage of people get problems at the interview, you still have to prepare for the interview because the cost of those problems is tremendous. It's not worth the risk to just hope that it all turns out okay or that the consular officer shows up in a good mood that day. It's all a human communication process. So you have to make sure you come prepared and you're able to communicate your intentions and purpose well. Please share this episode with companies, HR and recruiting professionals, startup founders, international talent, or anyone who can benefit from it.

According to a recent Gartner study, DEI is one of the top five business priorities for businesses in 2022. However, hybrid and in-person work environments could jeopardize company access to talent. So while more organizations are doubling down on diversity and inclusion efforts and implementing consequential reporting, meeting those goals still remains a challenge for many corporations. One way to help increase diversity in an organization is to provide opportunities for growth from the entry-level employee sector. Ahva Sadeghi, Co-Founder & CEO of Symba shares with me how remote internship programs allow employers to access diverse talent and fill their future hiring pipeline. Ahva also shares her inspirational tech startup story and ways remote positions can feed an overall DEI strategy, and how they contribute to tenure, culture, and overall company wellness.

Are you moving fast enough? On today's episode, I have a wonderful discussion with Nick Donofrio, who has spent most of his life as a technology leader. Although Nick had countless accomplishments, he wonders if he was moving fast enough. Nick worked in various roles at IBM for 44 years. During that time, he redefined innovation at IBM and initiated worldwide collaboration for the company. Nick was the first Executive Vice President of Innovation and Technology at IBM. And, he was named one of Business Week's 25 top innovation champions. Nick is the author of the book: If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes. The book discusses how Nick and others led IBM's global technical team. During our discussion, Nick talks about how Innovation played an important role in IBM's transformation during his 44 years at the company. I'm sure you will enjoy this discussion (and get some tips for your own business, like I did) as Nick shares his knowledge and experiences during his many years at IBM. “Transforming IBM into an innovation company was all about value creation.” – Nick Donofrio Today on the Tech Leader Talk podcast: - How IBM was transformed into an innovation company - Helping your team members be more successful - The role of Nick's mom in his career Nick's Book: If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes: https://www.amazon.com/If-Nothing-Changes-Donofrio-Story/dp/1544531346 Connect with Nick Donofrio: Website: https://www.nickdonofriobook.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/nicholas-donofrio-7588609/ Download Steve's free white paper, InventLock™ Protection Guide for Tech Startups, at: https://stevesponseller.com/guide Thanks for listening!
