The Inner Chief

Jan 11, 2023

β€œThere's 1.35 million tech-enabled impact-focused startups created every single year around the world. Entrepreneurs are spending 60% plus of their time trying to raise capital in a market that they don't understand because it's a dark art.”

In this episode of The Inner Chief podcast, I speak to Ant Moorhouse, Co-Founder and CEO of EarthTech, on purpose-driven leadership, and changing the planet by harnessing technology and capitalism.

πŸŽ§πŸ‘‰  πŸ‘‚


Before becoming the purpose-driven serial entrepreneur and leader that he is today, Ant was a Counter Terrorism Commander in the Australian Special Forces.

After a decade in the military, he started a crisis response and medical evacuation company with $19,000 on his kitchen table. 10 years later he sold his firm to a multi-national insurance company.

Ant spent 4 years inside the tech scene in Boulder Colorado, honing his craft, before returning home to Australia.

In 2019, he and business partner Brian Keayes co-founded EarthTech, a platform on a mission to help mobilise the global resources needed to positively impact 1 billion lives and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

In this episode we talk about:

βœ…  What he learnt about himself and others during his military career

βœ…  The pitfalls of transitioning from Special Forces to entrepreneurship

βœ…  Growing pains of a scaling business

βœ…  How EarthTech is harnessing the power of technology and capitalism to create positive change at scale.
