In this deep and wide interview, Henry Kaestner discusses entrepreneurial anxiety and the cure, the redemptive power of business, and how to build top-performing companies that also make a positive impact on culture.
Henry is a Managing Principal in Sovereign’s Capital, a private equity and venture capital management company that invests in faith driven entrepreneurs in SouthEast Asia and the US from its offices in Silicon Valley, Washington DC and Jakarta, Indonesia.
