The Sydcast is all about intimate and informative conversations with fascinating people you may not know. Until now. Because everyone has a story.

Sydney Finkelstein is an award winning professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and a best-selling author of Superbosses and 25 other books. He’s written for the Harvard Business Review, the BBC, Fortune, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, and more academic journals than you’d care to know about.

We all have friends, but Howard has some very interesting friends. Like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, among others. Meet Howard Anderson, the guy who almost single-handedly invented the technology consulting industry.
When Howard was 24 years old, a story broke on the front page of the New York Times about a technology report he had written. There was only one problem: there was no report. His analysis was on the money; the report, well, that came afterwards. Almost 50 years later, Howard has a venture capital firm with billions of dollars in investments and has crossed paths with the most legendary names in tech, including Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg. Howard’s numerous anecdotes and insights highlight his contrarian personality and give us a glimpse into the mind of a lifelong entrepreneur with a story to tell. Listen in as Syd introduces the Sydcast and talks to Howard about his life, the world of tech, and even how he met his wife.
