It's Episode 006 when we see the benefits of softer values in tomorrow’s world.
This time we are in Ruchika’s home garden in San Jose, California, USA, on a pleasant Saturday March afternoon. Ruchika Sikri reflects on her long career at Google, leaving that company to team up with an all-star talent at Wisdom Ventures, a fund investing in entrepreneurs and early-stage companies in the impact space.
Ruchika (b. 1976) is a well-being pioneer in Silicon Valley, USA, a mother of two and VC following her calling to create a better world through investing. After a successful corporate career of 25+ years at Google, Microsoft and Cisco, Ruchika is now following her life's purpose and mission to create a more equal world by supporting globally accessible mindfulness, compassion and wellness offerings.
“If you look at the word imperfect, it has perfect hiding in it. I am perfect, is imperfect.” — Ruchika Sikri
Talks of imperfection – Not your ordinary business podcast
Talks of imperfection is a new podcast series of intimately open diverse conversations where globally recognized leaders, founders, entrepreneurs and activists reveal their personal relationships with growth, collaboration, success and imperfection.
Season one features eight carefully curated guests coming from different backgrounds, cultures, languages and professions who all share the common goal of creating a more equal, more reasonable and increasingly sustainable future through their talent, network, vision and passion.
This is not your ordinary business podcast but a gentle platform for deeply meaningful conversations that redefines our views on doubt, failure and vulnerability and connects the blurring dots between smarter working habits and more balanced private life.
The show is in English only and hosted by Risto Kuulasmaa, an Amsterdam-based entrepreneur, wanna-be surfer and a life-long student of imperfection, and enabled by Edita Prima, the kindest Nordic tech company that orchestrates automated customer journeys to perfection.
“Life is perfect. How you relate to life creates all the imperfections. Nature is perfect and we are part of it, it is our minds that creates the separation. We create our subjective truths about perfection and imperfection and this is why talking about imperfections is so interesting.” — Risto Kuulasmaa
