ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y., December 2, 2016 /3BL Media/ - The Sustainable Business Fridays podcast continues this week featuring a conversation with Adam Kearney, Founder and CEO of Propsboard, a peer recognition start-up that uses office TVs to amplify company’s superstars. Bard MBA student, Martin Freeman discusses Kearney’s successes and failures and gets his advice on becoming a serial entrepreneur.

Prior to founding Propsboard, Kearney was the CEO of Connectome, now acquired, a music intelligence company that specialized in search, discovery, and recommendations. He also co-founded Philly Startup Leaders, a flagship program featuring a fully integrated Startup Bootcamp and Accelerator that helps up-and-coming entrepreneurs with strategy, vision, and execution. Kearney passes along the lessons learned in this podcast to Freeman and listeners saying, “You have to be comfortable with failure, the unknown, and be relentless” to success as a serial entrepreneur.

The Bard MBA in Sustainability is one of a select few graduate programs globally that fully integrates sustainability into a core business curriculum. In the Bard MBA, every class is organized around one critical question: How can we build or transform our businesses so that they are in business to solve the pressing social and environmental problems of our time? Graduates of the Bard MBA are transforming existing companies, starting their own, and pioneering a new paradigm of doing business that meets human needs, protects and restores the Earth's systems, and treats all stakeholders with justice and respect.
