Break Down. Wake Up. podcast – 002 – Doing Things Differently with Joshua Haynes


How growing up in a world of constant change inspired an innovative business and commitment to equality. 

Joshua and I discuss how his upbringing helped him develop new approaches to projects and businesses. After years of working in international development and public innovation projects, he took the leap to start a new venture in an area he had little experience in: finance.

Joshua started a mental health impact investment fund inspired and fueled by his own challenges with depression, anxiety and addiction.
