Description

What dream do you have that’s so big, others call it impossible?

It seemed impossible to land on the moon — until we did it. It may seem impossible to scale an abundance of land, medicine, education, creative freedom, clean water, energy — until we do it. The limits to what our species can achieve are bound only by our imaginations.

Internationally renowned entrepreneur and thought leader Naveen Jain created the Moonshots Podcast to bring you living examples of people who are solving the world’s biggest challenges through innovation. His goal is to help you develop your passion, pursue your purpose, and make your mark on the world.

The internationally renowned founder of Moon Express, World Innovation Institute, iNome, TalentWise, Intelius, and Infospace, Naveen sees beyond the current business and technological landscape, creating companies that make a true impact. He and his guests will inspire you to do the same — and, show you how.

Mr. Jain, I began listening to this podcast because I have found your enthusiasm inspiring and infectious. Recently I listened to ep.7 with Dr. Momo. it was very disappointing to realize that I was just listening to a 30 minute sales pitch for your own company. You have every right to want to promote your products and I believe there is merit to the s science. In the future I don't believe it is necessary for you to make believe that you were somehow learning in real time revelatory fashion the concepts your business partner presented. I think your audience is more intelligent than that. In closing I do believe your work is important and I am glad big thinkers like you exist.
