He left Reuters to start ClearCompany, the first talent alignment platform. Andre explains that 40% of a typical company's assets are not focused on the primary objectives of the company. Imagine if this 40% could be redirected? Clear Company provides a platform that does exactly that. The patent pending technology allows organizations to study the contribution of each employee and direct them to maximize strategic alignment within the company.      [caption id="attachment_6890" align="alignright" width="203"] Joel Yarmon[/caption] Joel Yarmon - Venture Capitalist at Draper Associates - Highlight Here Joel Yarmon has been on the show before, and we thought he was so great, we asked him back.

After that, Kamran proceeded to start a series of companies that IPOed in the hundreds of millions and eventually were worth billions.
