Kartik Hosanagar wasn't your typical Hollywood hopeful. He didn't pack his life into a sedan, drive to Los Angeles, and work a series of part-time jobs while trying to make it big in the film industry. Kartik is a professor of business and marketing at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School who penned a screenplay while on sabbatical. When he started pitching it to potential producers, he quickly discovered that the film industry can be hesitant to take risks on new writers and directors — which often means that diverse talent is overlooked. So, to help unknown talent to break into the entertainment industry, he got to work founding Jumpcut, a venture-funded startup that aims to uncover new voices. In the first episode of Season 3 of Me, Myself, and AI, our hosts talk with Kartik about how Jumpcut uses AI to identify creative individuals and help them develop their ideas into studio-ready productions.  Me, Myself, and AI is a collaborative podcast from MIT Sloan Management Review and Boston Consulting Group and is hosted by Sam Ransbotham and Shervin Khodabandeh.

His research focuses on the digital economy and the impact of analytics and algorithms on consumers and society. Hosanagar is a 10-time recipient of MBA or undergraduate teaching excellence awards at The Wharton School.

You can learn a lot from a world driven by growing enterprise value from day one. Let the expert who wrote two books on the subject walk you through the world of startups — from fundraising to exit — to show what focusing on the end goal can do for you and your company, starting today.Alejandro Cremades is a serial entrepreneur, M&A advisor, and author of the books The Art of Startup Fundraising and Selling Your Startup. He’s even been recognized by Barbara Corcoran of “Shark Tank” and is well-known for “The Deal Makers Podcast,” so to say he knows a thing or two about entrepreneurship is an understatement. Be ready to get pumped up about growth in this episode designed to help small- and mid-sized businesses navigate the funding landscape and achieve their long-term goals. What You Will Learn Why Alejandro thinks exiting is 10x harder than raising capital What types of investors are out there any why they invest The differences between a strategic acquisition vs a financial acquisition and when each exit makes sense Why Alejandro says the biggest mistake is when founders think “they are the company” The different rounds in fundraising - and what the requirements and expectations are for each round The art of the deal when negotiating the valuation of your company with an investor (let them talk first so you can talk them up) How to balance your priorities with an investor’s priorities while scaling the company Why it’s important to have an M&A advisor in an exit and how to avoid bad decisions under stress The one question you need to ask when seriously considering an investor Why VC competition has expanded globally vs what it was like 15 years ago Which businesses are going to suffer when a market corrects itself What Private equity and venture capital truly invests in (numbers vs founders) Bio: Alejandro Cremades is a serial entrepreneur and the author of The Art of Startup Fundraising (foreword by ‘Shark Tank‘ star Barbara Corcoran) and recently released Selling Your Startup. Most recently, he started Panthera Advisors, a premier investment banking and financial consulting firm after his own exit. Alejandro built and exited CoFoundersLab which is one of the largest communities of founders online with over 500,000 members. Prior to CoFoundersLab, he worked as a lawyer at King & Spalding where he was involved in one of the biggest investment arbitration cases in history ($113 billion at stake). Alejandro is an active speaker and has given guest lectures at the Wharton School of Business, Columbia Business School, and at NYU Stern School of Business. He have been involved with the JOBS Act since inception and was invited to the White House and the US House of Representatives to provide his stands on the new regulatory changes concerning fundraising online. Quotes: 11:56 - “When people raise money, they don’t realize that when you’re raising money, there is money in with expectations of money out.” - Alejandro Cremades 12:35 - “The way you raise money today is going to impact the way that you raise money tomorrow but then also, they way that you can exit your business.” - Alejandro Cremades 15:14 - “You should never think about fundraising as money. You need to think about fundraising as networks. It’s all about turning around the money and really thinking–more than anything–about who is giving you the money and how you can leverage their network in order to get to

Customer-centricity is essential in the world of subscriptions. To succeed you have to understand who your most valuable customers are, and invest your resources in those relationships. But measuring the value of each customer over an extended period of time, and understanding which metrics matter most, can be tricky. Peter Fader, the Frances and Pei-Yuan Chia Professor of Marketing at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, is perhaps the leading expert in the world on how to assess the value of a business by understanding the value of the customer over their entire relationship with an organization from source to completion. Peter has literally written the book on customer centricity. Well, actually, two books: Customer Centricity: Focus on the Right Customers for Strategic Advantage and The Customer Centricity Playbook which he co-authored with Sarah Toms. In this episode, we discuss customer-centricity, customer lifetime value and how to use available public data to evaluate a company--using D2C prescription glasses retailer Warby Parker as an example. We also talk about why current accounting standards don't always tell the full story--and how this needs to change.

The Houston Midtown Chapter of The Society for Financial Awareness Presents MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

The COVID-19 pandemic forced an unprecedented experiment that reshaped white-collar work and turned remote work into a kind of “new normal.” Now comes the hard part. We were joined today by author, Peter Cappelli to discuss his new book, THE FUTURE OF THE OFFICE Work from Home, Remote Work, and the Hard Choices We All Face. Many employees want to continue this “new normal” and keep working remotely, and most at least want the ability to work occasionally from home. But for employers, the benefits of employees working from home, or hybrid approaches, are not so obvious. What should both groups do? A prescient new book, The Future of the Office: Work from Home, Remote Work, and the Hard Choices We All Face by Peter Cappelli lays out the facts to provide everyone involved with a vision of their futures. Cappelli unveils the surprising tradeoffs both employers and employees may have to accept to get what they want. Peter Cappelli is the George W. Taylor Professor of Management at the Wharton School and director of Wharton's Center for Human Resources. He writes a monthly column on workforce issues for Human Resource Executive Online and is a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal and the Harvard Business Review.

Most of us would prefer to avoid an argument at work or at home. But there are times when arguments—at least when they're civil—can help surface important information for decision-making. In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, we look at situations where certain types of conflict can actually lead to better outcomes.You're probably familiar with the story of Orville and Wilbur Wright. The Wright brothers secured their place in history by achieving the world's first sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in December of 1903. Less well known is the fact that the brothers would often argue intensely with each other over their engineering ideas.Tom Crouch reveals the family culture of argument and debate inside the Wright home as the brothers were growing up, and he explains how that argumentative streak may have helped them solve a key problem in their quest for powered flight.Tom D. Crouch is curator emeritus of the Smithsonian Institution and the author of The Bishop's Boys: A Lifeof Wilbur and Orville Wright.A version of the Wright Brothers story appears in Adam Grant's new book, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know. Adam joins Katy to discuss how you can leverage constructive conflict to arrive at better decisions. He also explains how agreeableness can sometimes hold you back. Adam Grant is the Saul P. Steinberg Professor of Management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He's also host of the popular TED podcast WorkLife.Finally, Katy provides advice on how to find the right level of task conflict in order to maximize the creativity and innovation that comes from collaborative problem solving.Choiceology is an original podcast from Charles Schwab.

Sherrif is a life-long learner, and in addition to completing his bachelor's degree and Masters of Business Administration from York University in Toronto, Canada; he has completed postgraduate certificate programs at Wharton School of Business at The University of Pennsylvania, Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. At Harvard Business and Law School, he completed a program on strategic negotiations for senior executives and a program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one on data intelligence and big data. On this episode of Destination on the Left, I talk with Sherrif Karamat, who I met at the Destinations International annual convention in Baltimore, Maryland, and whose insights I hope will inspire you going forward. Sherrif shares his thoughts on the importance of face-to-face meetings and gives an overarching perspective of the business meetings industry's impacts on a vast range of topics and industries. We discuss why when we meet in person, we solve complex issues faster, how those connections will help form and sustain the meetings industry of the future, and why disruption uncovers new value and brings us into focusing on outcomes rather than outputs. What You Will Learn: Why the events industry has been sadly missed over the last 18 months The critical flashes of brilliance that Sherrif has found during the COVID-19 pandemic Lessons learned on recovery and change and how Sherrif is taking some of them forward How do we create engaging experiences and broaden our reach with technology Sherrif's thoughts on how disruption will shape the future of the travel industry Why it's vital to be centered around the people we serve, so they will want to engage with us Lessons for the Future When humans are faced with roadblocks, we start to innovate — and COVID-19 certainly threw up a few obstacles! Sharrif and I discuss the lessons learned by the travel industry, including how we can leverage technology to broaden our reach and engage with more people. Sharrif also shares why he firmly believes that in-person events will see a resurgence in the future as people seek out opportunities to forge meaningful connections. Purpose Driven Outcomes Disruption can help us uncover added value by challenging the status quo. In the travel industry, we want to center our events and organizations around the customers we serve and how we are solving their issues or creating value for them that makes them want to engage with us. When we rethink that status quo and shift our mindset, we can bring people together and focus on positive outcomes, not merely outputs.

In today's episode, we're sharing Rusty's recent live interview with Jeremy Siegel from Orion's Ascent conference. Jeremy Siegel is a professor of finance at the Wharton School of Business and a Senior Investment Strategy Advisor at WisdomTree Asset Management. Jeremy's opinion on the economy and the financial markets has long been trusted and sought after by Wall Street firms because of his decisive and evidence-based approach. His view on inflation is notable and provides valuable insight into the markets from someone who's been in the industry for a long time.  Jeremy talks with Rusty and Robyn about the benefits of value and global investing, the future of stocks and bonds, and insights regarding the future of the US market after an inflation run. "Volatility is a mark of equities and all speculative markets, so we're not going to be immune to it. But right now, when I look at relative valuations, they still argue in the direction of stocks over bonds." ~Jeremy Siegel Main Takeaways  The markets aren't all doom and gloom. When the inflationary run is over, we'll be enjoying inflation rates as low as four to seven percent—rates that are still lower than those we had in the 1970s. Value stocks are projected to outperform other asset classes over the next 12 months. When the market is experiencing moderate inflation, choose stocks over bonds. Bonds with stabilized yields do not necessarily mean they are good investments. As long as inflation goes up, bonds are just depreciating assets. If you do invest in bonds, corporate bonds will fare better than noncallable bonds and long-term treasuries. Advisors need to do two things: manage expectations and prepare investors for volatility. Investors get easily swayed by the doomsayers, but advisors must give them the long-term perspective, the history of the market, and help them stick with their plan. Crypto assets aren't serious competitors to the dollar in terms of being an efficient transaction scheme. However, they present promising tech to innovate fund transfer operations.

"If we can set goals, that make it bite-size to achieve the long run objective, then that brings forward also our motivation, because we can see what we need to do today and tomorrow." Katy Milkman What inspired Katy Milkman to become a behavioral scientist? What is 'present-bias' and why is it so common? How are habits maintained and built? What are the personal benefits of 'temptation bundling'? Jack of all trades: An illustrious career Behavioral scientist, professor of operations, economist; Dr. Katy Milkman can do it all. She's so versatile that in addition to being a Professor at Wharton School of Business, she has a secondary appointment at Penn's Perelman School of Medicine. Her research revolves around the process of decision-making and habit formation; essentially, how people change. With a range of academic interests and abilities, Dr. Milkman is one of the most reliable resources in the field. She's won awards through research, including an early career award from the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences. She was named one of the top 40 under 40 business school professors in the world by Poets & Quants, as well as a finalist for the Thinkers 50 2017 Radar Thinker Award. Katy's work is published on platforms such as The New York Times and The Harvard Business Review and is regularly featured on NPR. She's become something of a celebrity in academic circles. But it's her work translating the science for ordinary people that may have the most impact. She hosts the Choiceology podcast for Charles Schwab, has a TEDx talk, and her new book, How to Change, was named one of the Amazon's best of 2021. Dr. Milkman is not just researching change. She's making it available to everyone. Gaming the System: Exploring behavioral economics Throughout her career Katy has gained insight from the decision-making process of average people. Knowing what makes people tick and why can be life-changing. We look at what motivates people, internal and external barriers, goal pursuing and habits. We dig into the mechanics behind behaviorism as Katy tells us about devices like 'present bias' and 'gamification'. Gamification can be a powerful force for change. By creating game-like incentives for behavior, goal achievement can be more fun. This strategy can be applied to individual habits or to something larger like employee performance and government programs, like vaccine adoption. The possibilities are endless. Patience is a Virtue: Behavioral change takes time As a member of the Forbes Top 10 Behavioral Scientists of 2020 list, Dr. Milkman knows a thing or two about human nature. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Milkman argued that getting people to wear masks would have been easier if people had considered them as fashion items. This thesis closely relates to a term she coined: 'temptation bundling'. It's the idea of coupling something you enjoy with something you view as a burden to invoke the willpower to get things completed. As she says, "if we recognize we need to make it fun to pursue our goals, we're going to be much more likely to persist". In our discussion, Katy draws on the ways people find motivation to pursue their goals, self-discipline and social influence. Want to find out more about yourself? Katy has the answers. Key takeaways: Tick Tock: Behavioral and habitual change doesn't happen overnight.

Our guest on the podcast this week is Linn Yap, the founder of the Activ8 network, whose mission is to increase the participation of women in technology and entrepreneurship. She started her career as a corporate attorney, graduated from the Wharton School with an MBA, and worked in investment banking. Her curiosity led her to write about business as a force for good. Her book the Altruistic Capitalist brings together conversations with leaders at for-profit corporations, entrepreneurs, and investors, and her personal experience, all in service of the changes the world needs. As Lynn says we can no longer rely on governments and non-profit organizations alone to solve our social and environmental problems. Today Lynn shares her experiences of becoming a corporate attorney in investment banking and how a personal request that was declined during the Facebook IPO changed everything for her and catalyzes her passion for working with organizations that embrace all stakeholders within the business. Listen in as we talk through what it means to be an “altruistic capitalist”, and we begin to unpack the challenges facing leaders and the unique opportunities that exist today. Lynn speaks with a deep passion about having an open mindset, about curiosity and its role in social impact, and about the value of collaboration and partnerships. As she says “It's not about profit only, it's about growing the pie”. She shares some exciting data from the World Economic Forum that shows that business is already heading in this direction, and it's no longer a choice we have whether to embrace this perspective or not, it's something we need to do if we want our business to survive in the longer term. If you work with leaders or you want to step into your leadership in a better way, this is a conversation you don't want to miss. I suspect you'll enjoy this lively discourse as much as I did. Key Takeaways Lynn's dynamic perspective on how to lead in a capitalist economy The difference between focusing solely on profit and focusing on all stakeholders and its impact on the bottom line. The value of mindfulness and curiosity How innovation and social impact are closely related to better financial results.

Advance Your Career. addresses an increasingly urgent problem in today's workplace: standing up for core values such as honesty, fairness, personal dignity, and justice when the pressure is on to look the other way. Why do we struggle with doing what is right? All kinds of rationalizations put you away from looking at the problem. Incentives prompt us to look the other way. Position of power or control enables you to look the other way. People don't see what's in front of them because they're paying attention to something else. Inattention blindness Seeing it vs. owning it. What would a person of conscience do, who is a principal? Observe and willing to own it. When it comes to values, there's no such thing as a small conflict. turning away from conflict is a habit. Virtue is a habit - Aristotle and major religions. Don't do evil just because you think it's a little evil.

Alas, now an ancient prophesy has been fulfilled… Telemus said all these things would come to pass someday. — Homer's Odyssey During this episode, the Honorable Dr. Mike Vickers provides his thoughts on a wide range of strategic issues--all of which have connections with the information environment. Mike makes the case that America is like the cyclops in Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey. Like the cyclops, the United States is being blinded and deceived by clever adversaries. Mike also discusses China, India, Estonian technology implementation, the authoritarian-democracy trade off, and international relations theory. He also gives a nuanced examination regarding "whole-of-nation" sloganeering. On one hand, Mike discourages simple phrases that might promote inadequate solutions; on the other, he does agree that we are at a point where we need to cohere around a national strategy and direct our instruments of power productively--including our citizenry.

Vickers is career as a special operator, CIA operations officer, national security policy maker and Intelligence Community leader spanned the last two decades of the Cold War through a decade and a half of our war with al-Qa'ida, its allies and its offshoots – service that saw unprecedented senior tenure across Republican and Democratic administrations. Most recently, from 2011 to 2015, Dr. Vickers served as the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, exercising authority, direction and control over the National Security Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, Defense Security Service, and the intelligence components of the Military Services and Combatant Commands. As the USD(I), he conceived and led a comprehensive transformation of defense intelligence capabilities, encompassing the signals intelligence system and overhead space architecture, penetrating and persistent remotely piloted aircraft, the Department's strategic human intelligence posture, its corps of all-source analysts, and its cyber operations forces. From 2007 to 2011, he served as the first and only Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations, Low-Intensity Conflict and Interdependent Capabilities. As the ASD SO/LIC&IC, Dr. Vickers was the “Service” Secretary for all Special Operations Forces, and had policy oversight of all of DoD's operational capabilities – strategic forces (nuclear forces, missile defense, space, cyber), conventional force transformation (air, ground and maritime), and Special Operations Forces. He conceived and led the largest expansion of Special Operations Forces in our nation's history, and oversaw several other major capability investments ranging from next generation long-range strike to undersea warfare to deter future great power war. Throughout his nearly decade-long service as a national security policy maker and Intelligence Community leader, Dr. Vickers was heavily involved in operations. He was a key operational strategist for the campaign to dismantle and defeat core al-Qa'ida, and played a major policy and planning role in the operation that killed Usama bin Ladin. He oversaw counterterrorism operations in multiple countries and a wide range of other operations, from the surge of forces in Afghanistan to sensitive intelligence collection operations, paramilitary support to opposition forces battling despotic regimes, operations against rogue state nuclear weapons and missile programs, and operations against drug cartels. During the nearly decade and a half that spanned the operational phase of his career, he served as a Special Forces weapons and engineer sergeant, as the commander of a classified counterterrorism unit, and as CIA operations officer.  As a Special Forces solider and officer, he was trained to parachute behind Soviet lines with a “backpack” nuclear weapon, and led hostage rescue operations and sensitive intelligence collection operations. As a CIA officer, he played key roles in the invasion of Grenada, the US government's operational response to the Beirut bombings, and the covert effort to drive the Red Army out of Afghanistan. As the principal strategist for the multi-billion dollar Afghanistan covert action program – the largest and most successful covert action program in CIA's history – Dr. Vickers developed the winning strategy when very few thought it was possible to win. His contributions to the first war the Red Army had ever lost and US victory in the Cold War were chronicled in the film and New York Times best seller, Charlie Wilson's War. Dr. Vickers has received the nation's highest awards in the fields of intelligence and defense, including the Presidential National Security Medal and the OSS Society's William J. Donovan Award.  He holds a Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and a B.A. from the University of Alabama.  He has written a memoir of his career, to be published by Knopf Penguin Random House in 2022.  He currently serves as an Executive Vice President at In-Q-Tel, a Principal with the Telemus Group, a senior advisor to the Boston Consulting Group, a senior fellow at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and on several corporate, non-profit and government boards.

NUGGET CONTEXT Katy speaks about Andre Agassi and the approach Brad Gilbert took with him when he was going through a slump. She says that Brad suggested that Andre would have to devise a strategy that is specific to each opponent and come up with a tailored approach to win and this new approach helped Agassi climb back to the top and win many more tournaments. Katy suggests a similar approach to tackling behavioral change. GUEST Katy Milkman is the James G. Dinan Professor at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and holds a secondary appointment at Penn's Perelman School of Medicine. Her research explores ways that insights from economics and psychology can be harnessed to change consequential behaviors for good, such as savings, exercise, vaccination take-up and discrimination. She has also recently authored the Book - How to Change - The Science of Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.  In 2018, she began hosting Charles Schwab's popular podcast “Choiceology with Katy Milkman”, which explores key lessons from behavioral economics about decision making.  Published in September 2021.  HOST Deepak is a Leadership Advisor and an Executive Coach.

NUGGET CONTEXT Katy speaks about how we all can leverage the power of a fresh start to drive behavioural change. She goes on to say that if we look hard enough then there might be several fresh opportunities we could find in our lives. Very often, we think Jan 1 in a year as a fresh start and have resolutions.

NUGGET CONTEXT Katy speaks about the power of constraints and commitment devices which can help us move towards our goals. She refers to what Victor Hugo did when he was faced with a deadline in 1830 to publish his new book – The Hunchback of Notre Dame. When he had only 6 months left, Victor collected all of his clothes, removed them from his chambers, and locked them away. He was left with nothing to wear except a large shawl. Lacking any suitable clothing to go outdoors, Hugo was no longer tempted to leave the house and get distracted. Staying inside and writing was his only option.
