Episode #120: Peter Diamandis on Exponential Technologies and Abundance Mindsets

I've been away on business in Singapore and Hong Kong this week, but that doesn't mean I've left you in the lurch. In fact, this week we bring you one of the biggest, most inspiring and influential names in technology and innovation, Dr. Peter Diamandis.

Collective Campus resident Grace Lai and Co-Founder of healthtech coompany, Periop Partners, had the privilege of interviewing Peter when taking part in his Abundance 360 program this year in San Francisco and his given me the opportunity to publish it for the lucky listeners of Future Squared!

As our guest host, she also asked Peter a couple of questions from me (thanks Grace) on Government startup partnerships and what Peter most fears in the world. So, who is Peter Diamandis?
