Jews You Should Know

Feb 4, 2019


Noam Wasserman lives in Boston - where he was a longtime, wildly popular Harvard Business School professor - but works in Los Angeles. And while he regularly traverses the country, he also straddles the dual worlds of business development and Jewish commitment.

As an academic, Wasserman has researched the challenges faced by founders of new enterprises, and shared his findings with thousands of students, among them many founders-in-waiting. Along the way he has authored several books, including a volume titled "Life is a Startup," applying these traditional business lessons to broader human contexts.

Ever community-minded, Wasserman was the founding chairman of the board of a new Jewish high school in Boston, and advises individuals, companies, and non-profits on the healthy practices that will enable them to survive and thrive beyond their nascent "founding" stages.
