Former Congressional Candidate Turned Entrepreneur Nomiki Konst on the Future of Politics and Business


Like many entrepreneurs, Nomiki Konst’s background may not seem particularly linear on paper. From interning during Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senatorial run and fundraising for the Obama campaign to founding the nonprofit organization Alliance Hollywood, Nomiki has managed to straddle the complicated and often misunderstood worlds of business and politics. In 2012, at only 28-years-old, she ran for House of Representatives in her hometown of Tucson, Arizona.

Today, Nomiki is the Co-founder and Executive Director of The Accountability Project—a nonprofit that investigates misconduct in politics and the private sector.

In this episode, Nomiki and I discuss:

  • Simple ways to dramatically boost your impact
  • Specific challenges facing women in politics and business
  • The changing political landscape and how it affects Millennials
  • How young people can leverage their youth to have an even greater impact
  • The future of American politics and why it may be fixable after all
  • Why accountability will become even more crucial to the success of the political and business landscape
  • The rise of the Independent Party and what that means for Democrats and Republicans
  • How venture capital plays a major role in the advancement of female entrepreneurs
