Today's guest is serial entrepreneur Hans Bakan. Hans is the founder of Open Dreams, a non profit working to provide education and mentorship to young students in global emerging markets. We discuss what it takes to avoid failure in your first company and carry those lessons learned with you to make your current company more successful. Also, how you you can use a company to improve the world. We discuss how Open Dreams is working to do just that in emerging global markets.
Joined today by Ramphis Castro of the Founder Institute, we explore some of the recent news in the technology, business and startup industries. Today's news includes: Google Changes It's Name To Alphabet, Zirtual Goes Dark Overnight, & NBC Invests In A Large Chunk of Buzzfeed.
Ambition Today started as something out of nothing. It has since grown and evolved over time to explore how people build their legacy throughout their lives. With this special “prequel” I wanted to provide some background on why Ambition Today exists as well as some direction on where to start with the show for those who were new to Ambition Today. I really hope you enjoy all our episodes and find them helpful in your own life. Thank you for being here. I really appreciate it and hope to be with you during all the future episodes of Ambition Today! ========== Follow Kevin Siskar on Twitter: twitter.com/TheSiskar Add Kevin Siskar on Snapchat: snapchat.com/add/krsiskar Visit Ambition Today on the Web: www.siskar.co/ambitiontoday Kevin Siskar brings you ambitious entrepreneurs inspired by Tim Ferriss, Entrepreneur on Fire, NPR, HBR, TED Radio Hour, the StartUp podcast, Pat Flynn, Tony Robbins, The Uncertain Hour, Bigger Pockets, Art of Charm, Dave Ramsey, Planet Money, Jocko Podcast, EntreLeadership, Zigler, APM Marketplace, Mixergy, Seth Godin, #AskGaryVee, Monocle 24 and The $100 MBA Show with Omar Zenhom, and Casey Neistat.
