Rahul Moodgal - Master Fund Raiser (Capital Allocators, EP.87). Rahul Moodgal has spent 20 years as a fund raiser across long only strategies, hedge funds, fund of funds, customized solutions, start-ups, and non-profits. Collectively, Rahul has raised and helped raise $60 billion for firms since 2005. He started his career in the industry at powerhouse TT International, and later joined The Children’s Investment Fund (TCI) where he led the marketing effort that raised $20 billion in just 3½ years. Within TCI’s affiliate model, Rahul also was responsible for the largest India fund raise in history ($1 billion for TCI New Horizon Fund), and the largest sector fund launch in history ($1.1 billion for Algebris Investments). Our conversation covers capital raising lessons learned from teaching, the value of transparency, the gold rush before 2008, the lean times afterwards, modern fee structures, the three key points to effective marketing, the three traits that will kill you, the two biggest issues start-up funds face, the best questions asked by leading allocators, and some of the worst horror stories in attempted capital raising. We close comparing by fund raising for charities and investment firms.

Rank #1: #1: Airbnb's Director of Experience, Katie Dill, tells us why Airbnb uses "stories" to design. In our world premiere, Katie Dill, Director of Experience Design at Airbnb, channels her inner “Steve Jobs” to explain how design at Airbnb is not just how it looks, but how it works, both in the workplace and on the screen.Rebranding Airbnb – Launching rebrands is hard. So what was it like the morning after Airbnb launched theirs? Katie walks us through the process used and how the design team was prepared for the world's reception.Value of storytelling – Storytelling is a vital piece of the puzzle, according to Dill. It not only helps designers paint a more visual image of the real-world problems faced by end-users, it can also be used as way to help non-designers better understand features.Tools of design – We all know the tools of design: intentionality, research, iteration, and implementation. What we often fail to recognize is how important these tools can be when used on the business side of things. From shaping the internal structure of a team, to explaining the importance of iteration – "lower risk, faster" – these tools can be used to fuel more efficient collaboration.FOLLOW USTwitter: http://twitter.com/highrespodcastFacebook: http://facebook.com/highrespodcastSoundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/highrespodcastYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzBkNPSxw15qrW_Y8p-oCUwGet early access to the next episode: http://highresolution.design/early-accessTHANKS TO OUR PARTNERSSquarespace – Squarespace is a SaaS-based content management system offering a website builder, eCommerce, and domains.

Rank #1: Daryl Anderson: The Reflex Blue Show #202. Daryl Anderson, Creative Director at Clark Creative Group, sits down to talk about working with local clients, Visit Omaha, and his own path into the design field. We end the show on some student advice. This is the first (of three) podcasts I recorded at the OnBrand Conference in Omaha – a collaboration of the local AAF, AIGA, AMA, IABC, and PRSA chapters. The event was held on July 18th, and even though it’s only in its second year, it already has the feel and direction of an event that’s been held for a decade. Big props to all five organizations, their volunteers, and the sponsors, for making this event an already established tradition for the Omaha design / advertising / marketing / pr / business communication fields. Enjoy. The post Daryl Anderson: The Reflex Blue Show #202 appeared first on 36 Point.
Rank #2: Grain & Mortar: The Reflex Blue Show #196. Grain & Mortar has been an award-winning branding and web development studio in Omaha, Nebraska since 2011, but 2018 brought them into the business of selling pants as well. Kristin DeKay, Eric Downs, and Jesse Harding stop by The Reflex Blue Show to discuss a little bit of the Grain & Mortar backstory, and then jumping to right around a year ago in buying a 135 year old building. The new office location, as well as a legit storefront, got them to start one of their other goals – a retail shop selling men’s goods at 1414 South 13th Street. We talk about some of the things involved in opening and running Vincent Outfitting Company, the safari swords that come through the door, and more. By the way, the Vincent Outfitters Company store really does look great. Getting a tour of the entire building a month before we recorded really showed the amount of effort and care the folks at Grain & Mortar put into their new space. Be sure to visit them this holiday season if you are in the area. As for The Reflex Blue Show, as we record around half of our episodes at Eleven19, it’s fun to actually record season 11, episode 19 (and fittingly release this episode on November 19). Between this podcast and the Be A Design Cast that proceeded it, this month marks my 13th year of podcasting, which sounds a bit crazy to even type out. I really do appreciate the people I’ve been able to meet either in-person or online because of it, and give huge thanks to all of our great listeners who make it worthwhile. We’ll be back in 2019 with season twelve, but until then… Enjoy. The Reflex Blue Show The post Grain & Mortar: The Reflex Blue Show #196 appeared first on 36 Point.
