Joe Blair (@joseph_blair) believes that a business does not have to sacrifice profit for purpose. As a venture capital investor with Obvious Ventures (Twitter, Medium, etc.), Joe is focused on companies with a world positive approach to business. That is to say, he’s focused on companies with a high potential for profit and a positive impact on the way we live and work.
In this episode, Blake and Joe discuss:
- How autonomous mobility might negatively affect small and medium-sized cities and what can be done about it.
- Why our changing media consumption habits will do away with cable news.
- The difference between “world positive” and “social impact” investing.
