As someone who recently left a firm without a new venture transition set in place… this is the first period since i finished up at UCSB (8yrs ago) where I actually have a chance to breath and evaluate my goals moving forward.. I can fully endorse the statements made by John, in particular the statement that ppl of my age(range) are looking to build companies with purpose and positive impact at their core.
I’ve poured my heart into every company I’ve worked for and/or helped start, but none have ever had the end result of making a material positive benefit to causes I care about, at least in my mind’s eye.
I’m thrilled to currently have the chance to further evaluate where I’m headed, and you can be sure it’s in the direction of a more resource conscious field - where an experience (not necessarily the ownership of a good or service that provides that experience) fuels the path forward.
Thanks for the great read!
