What Investing Partnerships Can Learn From The Dating World, with Chris West

In this episode of Be & Think in the House of Trust, I am listening to Chris West, an entrepreneur and partner at Sumerian Partners and Sumerian Foundation who pioneered an enterprise-based approach to investment.

In the past, Chris worked with a variety of donors, governments, NGOs and businesses in over a hundred developing countries. Chris’s approach to investing is like dating: there is something beautiful and inspiring in engaging in healthy relationships and empathising with one another. 🙂
