Do Mindful Tech Entrepreneurs Exist?
In this episode we talk to Adrian Schauer, CEO of Alaycare, a home healthcare software.
Adrian tries his best to be a mindful tech entrepreneur. His goal: to rise to his full potential by contributing to the world to the best of his ability, through running an organization that builds good home care software.
One way he does this is through his company’s goal of enabling the type of home care everyone would like to see their loved ones receive, while giving employees the opportunity to develop themselves by working in a purpose-driven organization. He believes that it’s possible to span the distance between being successful in the tech space, while at the same time contributing to society through running a purpose-driven company.
Adrian’s goal is not to consume the wealth created by his start-up. For him, the financial success of the company is aligned with the goal of creating a solution to provide better home-healthcare outcomes that, he hopes, will create value for the stake-holders (customers, employees, shareholders, etc.) while at the same time bringing a new solution to market.
Of course, Adrian acknowledges that one metric of entrepreneurial success is company valuation. He admits to being involved in trying to win that game – it defines success in the tech space and also provides more reach to deliver a quality solution to the problem of home-healthcare provision. For Adrian, raising capital is a question of using the potential energy that capital/money represents to build a software solution that will support the delivery of quality home-healthcare.
