Dr. Todd and Dr. Kim Saxton joined Mario on 10 Minute Mindset to talk about their journey into investing and entrepreneurism, how they approach investing in a company and what they look for in a potential company before investing, their hands-on approach to building businesses, and what they love so much about both teaching and living the entrepreneurial lifestyle.

70% of startups fail. Drs. Todd & Kim Saxton, award-winning professors at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, have witnessed this firsthand, and have made it their mission to help startup founders and investors navigate the “icebergs” that so often sink startups in their early stages.

Relying on decades of academic and professional experience in business strategy, entrepreneurship, marketing, and angel investing, Kim and Todd co-authored The Titanic Effect, with serial tech entrepreneur Michael Cloran. The book is a practical guide to help entrepreneurs and their supporters successfully launch and grow ventures.

Kim and Todd have advised, helped launch, and invested in hundreds of startups spanning life sciences, so ware, sports, consumer products, and services. They serve on various boards of entrepreneurial ventures and startup advisory associations. The pair have shared their expertise from the stage to dozens of audiences, including entrepreneurship and professional development associations, academic societies, and global companies like Roche Diagnostics and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals.
