The next 20 years… Extraordinary changes to the basic structure of the world.
July 2, 2013
Hosted by Bob Pritchard
This week we discuss how the institutions of business, education, banking and government are mired in the past and cannot possibly cope with the changes we will experience in the next 20 years; predictions for the year 2030; how a 21-year-old raised the largest seed round in Silicon Valley history, $25 million with just a prototype; and the dangers of WebCams. We also discuss how to create the perfect logo and what makes an entrepreneur successful. We have our regular Bob‘s ‘Thought for the Day’ segment and we answer listeners email questions. We have a tremendous interview with Won-G, a dynamic, charismatic hip-hop/rap recording artist who has built an entertainment, fashion and branding powerhouse called Real Sovage. Apart from being a hugely successful performer he has serious smarts when it comes to understanding the marketplace and running a successful business. We also have a popular Make a Pitch segment featuring Firefly Capital Management who in the last 12 months have returned 52% to investors.
