Be as Water with Khyati Sundaram

Khyati Sundaram is the CEO of Applied. She brings us her story about transitioning from Corporate into founding a start-up and then finding herself back on the job market being told her resume “did not fit”. At Applied, she found the perfect fit, a company that valued skills and that was helping other corporates do the same. We also talked about the pandemic, what she missed and what new habits she managed to create. Her advice for 2021? I can’t help repeat it to myself. Be as water.

Berlin Clothing Swap, Jenna Stein

It’s ok to say no with Jenna Stein

As I get ready to launch this podcast, I am trying to take a deep breath. As multiple parts of the podcast got cut, I try and not get frustrated about some amazing bits of conversation we lost. We all had a fair amount of unpredictable events in the last year or two. So I will add this one to the list and stay grateful for all that Jenna shared with us, her experience of moving countries, founding a movement, seeing it halt and having the energy to do it all again. Let’s hear about Berlin Clothing Swap.

Nix&Kix, Kerstin Robinson

Taking it step-by-step with Kerstin Robinson

Meet Kerstin Robinson, CEO and co-founder of Nix&Kix as we talk about the business, pandemic and how to look at the future. Coming from Finance 10 years ago, she did not know much about consumer products, even less about juice. But hard work and resourcefulness were the skills she needed. And Nix&Kix is here to banish boredom and put some healthy excitement back into soft drinks.

Bonny, Jessica Postiglione

Enjoying the Journey with Jessica Postiglione

I used to go to school with Jessica. At Harvard, we met often between parties, travels and class breaks. But this time, we met to talk about life and business. Jessica is the Founder and CEO of Bonny, the only deliciously clean and sustainably packaged fibre supplements brand on the market. On her second start-up, Jessica has many learning points to share with us on her journey leaving corporate life and setting up 2 start-ups.

Hybrid Work

Hybrid work and a new commute

I believe in hybrid working as a step forward. I am neither a believer in full time remote or full time in-office. I like to think that after all the enlightenment period we have just been through, we will know better and find solutions for a new way of working, adapted to teams, individuals, and today’s day and age.
