Join host Paul Shapiro as he talks with some of the leading start-up entrepreneurs and titans of industry alike using their businesses to help solve the world’s most pressing problems.

Sep 6, 2018

His Royal Highness Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal isn’t your typical vegan. A son of the man TIME magazine calls the “Arabian Warren Buffett,” he uses his wealth and influence to build a more sustainable world, supporting everything from plant-based and clean meat start-ups to virtual aquariums and clean energy.

In this interview, Toni Okamoto and Paul Shapiro go deep with Prince Khaled, covering not just his investment strategy and the role entrepreneurs play in solving social problems, but also a host of other topics. Does he think teens should go to college? What about the status of women in Saudi Arabia? What led him to join JUST’s board of directors? What does Islam have to say about the treatment of animals?
