In this episode, we talk to Douglas Campbell (Founder of Solid Power, Inc & Roccor, LLC) as we discuss his unusual path to entrepreneurship, how he is leading his team amidst the COVID-19 world pandemic, and how tough it can be starting two separate companies at the same time.

Follow him on LinkedIn

** More on Douglass**

Formally trained as an engineer and self-taught as a scrappy, aggressive, and laser-focused entrepreneur with a never-say-die attitude, I see myself as a bit of an outsider, as a leader paving the way for a new breed of no BS entrepreneurs. And, believe me, there is no shortage of hype in this community.

What brought me to where I am today – founder of two multi-million dollar tech startups – is a powerful drive toward non-conformity and a desire to do away with the posing and the posturing that seems to go hand-and-hand with today's startup ecosystem.

I am currently CEO of Solid Power and board chairman of Roccor, leading providers of technologies and products to the electric vehicle and spacecraft markets, respectively. Both companies are positioned within well-established industries – and are being funded and supported
by the likes of Ford Motor Company and NASA – and are currently undergoing and driving transformational change.

**More On Jacob**

After graduating with honors in business management economics and psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz, Jacob was excited to join the corporate world.

At his first job, he was told that he'd be traveling the country, meeting with executives and entrepreneurs, and doing all sorts of exciting work. A few months in, he was stuck doing data entry, cold calling, and PowerPoint presentations. One day the CEO came out of his beautiful corner office, handed Jacob a $10 bill, and said, "I'm late for a meeting, go grab me a cup of coffee, and get something for yourself as well." That was the last corporate job he ever had.

Today, Jacob Morgan is a trained futurist and one of the world's leading authorities on leadership, the future of work, employee experience, and leadership. He speaks in front of tens of thousands of people each year, and his content is seen over a million times a year. Jacob is the best-selling author of four books: The Future Leader (Wiley 2020), The Employee Experience Advantage (Wiley, 2017), The Future of Work (Wiley, 2014), and The Collaborative Organization (McGraw Hill, 2012). He speaks at over 50 conferences a year, including TED Academy, which is one of the most significant TED events in the world. Also, Jacob provides advisory and thought leadership services to various organizations around the world.

He is the founder of The Future of Work University at FutureOfWorkUniversity.com, an online education, and training platform that helps individuals and organizations thrive in the rapidly changing world of work. Courses explore topics such as employee experience, the future of work, and leadership skills. Jacob also created "The Future If," a global community of business leaders, authors, and futurists who explore what our future can look like IF certain technologies, ideas, approaches, and trends happen. The community looks at everything from AI and automation to leadership and management practices to augmented reality and virtual reality, the 4th industrial revolution, and everything in between.
