One of the more interesting parts of working at Virta is that it requires unconventional thinking. Reversing a global health issue deemed chronic and irreversible like type 2 diabetes simply demands it. In this episode of The Twenty Minute VC, Virta co-founder and CEO Sami Inkinen gives us several examples of how going against conventional wisdom is necessary for building a successful and disruptive company. Hear from Sami on:

  • Why we learn more from success than we do from failure
  • Why CEO’s need to be careful on how much they empathize with their team’s challenges
  • What athletes tell us about how we should prepare ourselves for the day-to-day grind of building companies

This is a great interview with a lot of wisdom and blunt honesty. Listen on iTunes or directly from your desktop or mobile device.
