Our guest in this episode is Raju Narisetti, CEO of Gizmodo Media Group.

Raju’s journey is inspiring: from a dairy salesman to the head of a digital media group at the heart of Univision. He speaks with Roxann Stafford, Matter’s Director of Program in New York, in a fireside chat recorded live with Matter Seven media entrepreneurs.

Raju’s experience speaks to what we acknowledge at Matter; there is no straight line to success and importance of being true to yourself. Everyone fails forward throughout their careers, and the risks Raju took and the things he wished he had done go to show that all of us can embrace imperfection, state our assumptions, test them, and learn.
