Why a startup with $10M in annual revenue took 18 months to get VC funding

Back in 2006, Joseph Heller went to China where he spent the next decade learning about the manufacturing business. Based on that experience he eventually built a startup called The Studio. The idea was to help connect people with a small business idea to manufacturers in China in a fully digital way. By 2016 he had grown his startup into a $10 million annual business with 100 employees around the world. But when it came to fundraising back in the U.S., Heller found it wasn’t easy for a Silic...

COVID-19 – Accelerating The Destruction Of Corporate Arrogance

by Joseph Heller, CEO & Founder of The/Studio Technologies In 2015, McKinsey did a study of average corporate lifespans on the S&P 500. They found that while in 1958, the average lifespan of a company listed on the S&P 500 was sixty-one years, in 2011 it was less than eighteen. By 2027, it was estimated that 75% of the companies currently on the S&P 500 will have been delisted. At this rate, a company listed on the S&P 500 today will only last 12 years. And today, the rate of global change is s...

Disclaimer : Warner Brothers Home Entertainment asks that we note it provided a free copy of “Fuller House: The Complete Fourth Season”.  The opinions I share are my own. “Based on Joseph Heller’s seminal novel of the same name, Catch-22 is the story of the incomparable, artful dodger, Yossarian (Christopher Abbott), a US Air Force bombardier in World War II who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him.

How to Prime Your Mind for Optimism

When I was in my early twenties, my boyfriend, Bart, and I were driving on a freeway near downtown Atlanta when we got a flat tire. I immediately panicked—this was long before everyone had cell phones. I worried we would be stranded for hours, that I’d have to either walk alone and get help or stay alone with the car, that our whole day would be ruined by this car trouble. As Bart pulled to the side of the road, I shared my numerous concerns. He looked questioningly at me and said, “I’m just g...

Hulu's 26 notable original TV shows, ranked from worst to best by critics

Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" won the best drama series Emmy award for 2017, making it the first streaming service to reach that prestigious spot. And though the show, which returns for season three on June 5, is Hulu's most well-known original series, it's by no means the service's only great one. Hulu's slate of new original TV has been red-hot this year, and much of it's been led by women. From "Shrill" to "Pen15," Hulu has quietly become the streamer with the highest consistent quality of ou...

Grant Heslov on Making Hulu’s ‘Catch-22’ With George Clooney

Joseph Heller’s “Catch-22” has a troubled Hollywood history. Mike Nichols’ 1970 feature film adaptation was a widely panned flop. Three years later, Richard Dreyfus starred in a busted CBS pilot based on the book. But with their new limited series premiering Friday on Hulu, producing partners George Clooney and Grant Heslov attempt to succeed where […]

George Clooney returns to TV in 'Catch-22'

Joseph Heller's anti-war novel "Catch-22" is set during World War II, but was published just as the US began getting into Vietnam, and the 1970 movie came out in the midst of that conflict. George Clooney brings his considerable star power to bear in bringing the satire to Hulu, but the six-part series feels like less than the sum of its parts.

TV Review: George Clooney’s ‘Catch-22’

Only television could contain “Catch-22.” Joseph Heller’s capacious World War II novel, stuffed with philosophical monologues, paradoxes, and a wide-ranging cast of expendable flyboys centered on the inertly gloomy Yossarian, provides little foothold for any potential reworking. A 1970 feature adaptation (Mike Nichols’ little-remembered third film, made after “The Graduate” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia […]
