Vivek Ramaswamy, a product of the American Dream, shares his journey from being a nerdy kid to becoming a biotech entrepreneur and founder of multi-billion-dollar companies. He faced challenges, but never saw hardship as victimhood. Instead, he found opportunities in adversity. After creating successful biotech companies that developed life-saving drugs, Vivek turned his attention to the rise of the ""woke cult"" and woke capitalism, writing best-selling books on these subjects.
Ramaswamy decided to take action and founded Strive Asset Management to compete with ESG-pushing asset management firms, urging companies to focus on making products and services for profit. Realizing the need for a cultural revival in America, he decided to run for US president. He aims to lead, not follow, and plans to use his podcast to open up the Overton window to discuss ideas that are currently seen as taboo, with the hope that these ideas will become mainstream in the future.
