Naveen Jain is driven to solve the world’s biggest challenges through innovation. His space company, Moon Express, is the first private enterprise to receive formal government approval to land on the moon this Fall — beating Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk. Naveen has also founded the companies Viome, World Innovation Institute, TalentWise, and Infospace, among others. Those companies goals range from making humanity a multi-planetary society, to rethinking the entire healthcare system from an entrepreneur’s perspective, to saving us from extinction — and that’s just scratching the surface. You could say Naveen knows how to dream big.

Naveen joins The IVY Podcast to discuss how entrepreneurs can sink their teeth into today’s most complex problems in order to catalyze original thinking, pursue “Moonshot” initiatives, and create companies that make a true impact.
