About The Author

Peter Sims is a bestselling author and the founder and chairman of BLK SHP (Black Sheep), Inc., a place and platform for making small bets and building new ventures. He is also an advisor at Google[x], The Moonshot Factory, Alphabet’s semi-secret innovation laboratory. After working as an investor in venture capital with Summit Partners in London, Sims became an accidental author, as the coauthor of True North, the bestseller that has been selected as one of the top twenty-five leadership books of all-time. After that, he stumbled into Stanford’s Institute of Design and learned product design and design thinking, an experience that helped Peter view himself as a creative for the first time, so he dedicated himself to writing his second book, Little Bets, for all those with untapped creativity. A top resource for innovators, it was selected as one of the six best advice books for entrepreneurs by The Wall Street Journal. Previously, he cofounded FUSE corps and was part of the initial team of collaborators that started Giving Tuesday, the global philanthropic movement that raised roughly $10 billion in over 100 countries for social good causes. He is a graduate of Bowdoin College and Stanford Business School. In all that he does, Peter feels most at home as a creative entrepreneur and innovator, contributing to making the world a bit more human.
