Shark Tank's Kevin O'Leary says his mom's investment policy dictates the way he invests.
She may also be the reason he believes so strongly in women-run businesses. Of the 44 companies he was invested in at the time of our interview, the majority are run by women and have not only returned his capital investment but are making him money.
O'Leary talks about the commonalities between women, mothers and good business. Believe it or not, he says a great manager can fire her mom.
And this is why we wanted O'Leary to be a part of #AlphaRising. He perfectly articulates why more women should be in the C-suite and in the boardroom.
