Entrepreneur, business owner and billionaire investor Mark Cuban gives us insight into how to create, grow, and pivot companies through the lens of his own experience launching and investing in an ever-growing portfolio of businesses. He shares his perspective on what he is excited about now and what he thinks will be the next big thing for investors. Finally, he gives us his views on the post-COVID economy and his vision for the future of our country.
A self-described “tech geek,” Cuban launched MicroSolutions, a PC consulting company, which he sold to CompuServe for $6 million in 1990. In 1995, he and a long-time friend then co-founded an internet radio company called Broadcast.com which was acquired by Yahoo! four years later for $5.7 billion. Today, Cuban is the famously outspoken owner of the Dallas Mavericks and has stakes in Magnolia Pictures, AXS TV and a long list of small startups. He has also starred on ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank, since 2011.
