Joseph Kopser co-founded a company, built it from scratch, then sold it to Mercedes. He stayed on with them to advise their senior leadership and assist in their evolution as a mobility company. From those experiences, he wrote the book, Catalyst, chronicling the opportunities and challenges in the 21st Century economy for business and policy makers. He's an active investor and mentor to dozens of companies. After running for Congress, he served a year as an Executive-in-Residence at the McCombs School of Business at UT-Austin. Today, he's using those experiences as well as his own 20 years of service in the Army (including time as a Special Assistant to the CEO of the Army) to build the next generation of leaders in some of the most exciting companies and public entities in America. He advises leaders and teams in business, non-profit and academia.
