How can we solve the biggest problems facing humanity and the planet by leveraging the power of businesses to create positive change?
My guest this week has dedicated his time, skills and resources to address this question in the most impactful way possible.
Anders H. Lier is an international impact investor and a leader in the field of innovation and technology. He has been pioneering early stage impact investing, he is Co-founder of Katapult Group and he is an active angel investor.
We talk about how he has experienced a number of pivotal moments (Coconut moments, as I call them) through his life and career, and how these moments have lead him down new paths. One result being his long involvement with girls’ education in India.
We also discuss the power of exponential thinking and how this brings hope to solving some of our biggest problems, especially related to the climate crisis.
This conversation left me with a great deal of hope and a huge boost of inspiration and I hope you will have the same experience!
