Own the Future. w/ Jesse Lee

By WestwoodWestwood

Tune in for insight and perspectives from industry leaders and entrepreneurial creatives - covering both timely and timeless subject matters such as the impact of the pandemic, effects of social media, and macro shift in retail/consumer behavior. Season 1 (aka ‘the mixtape’) features 10 episodes/guests discussing the world of luxury (Kering), new media landscape (Business of Fashion), the rise of reselling (Scout), experiential retail (Miami Design District), the ritual of an artist/creative (February James), being mission-driven (KROST), re-thinking wellness (Sporty & Rich), upcycling in fashion (JJ Vintage), and achieving ubiquity while remaining authentic as a brand (Apple and Nike). Season 2 is co-hosted by Truman Sacks and features some of the smartest, most culturally-in-tuned investors. In addition to Chamath Palihapitiya kicking things off for the new season, the next 4 episodes highlight the top young VCs making a name for themselves; Gaby Goldberg/Bessemer, Jerry Lu/Maveron, Rex Woodbury/Index, and Christine Kim/Greylock.
