Scully/The World Show

Bud Kirchner (#1334)

The 2010 Holiday Edition reprises Bob's interview with two-time Entrepreneur of the Year Bud Kirchner, an Alabama venture capitalist credited with having a remarkable golden touch. Kirchner has dedicated his career to helping companies achieve their potential by parachuting in his management team to tighten operations and generate momentum. Yet he may well have found his most satisfying work in social entrepreneurship, developing the Hidden Angel Foundation in memory of his son. It offers Multi-Sensory Environments (MSEs) so that disabled individuals can stimulate brain activity and better engage with the world around them. Through Kirchner's efforts, we see how the entrepreneurial spirit pays dividends in so many more ways than just what appears on the balance sheet. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
