Robb Smith

Robb focuses on significantly improving human life through large-scale innovation. In his early twenties Robb was hailed for “soaring vision” when he developed a plan to build Nevada’s innovation economy and went on to start Nevada Ventures, Nevada’s first venture capital fund. He helped pioneer award-winning biodefense nanotechnology funded by DARPA and served as a director for Alere, which became the largest population health company in the United States (NYSE: ALR). He was a co-founding member of the Conscious Capitalism movement, served as Chairman of RetailOne, co-founder of Integral Life and was named Nevada’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year. He co-founded Chrysallis, where he is CEO, after working on the challenge of global-scale human development. He is a descendant of Martin Luther, so a deep love for change is in his blood.

The United States has just elected a wartime president, a Commander in Chief who is already on a wartime footing and was on a wartime footing from the moment his campaign began last year. And he won because a plurality of the country were the war's first casualties and they wanted a president who could help them stop losing. This isn't a military war. It's a jobs war.

Americans have just elected Donald Trump as President-elect of the United States of America. I know that a few of you are elated and many more are terrified. I can understand both emotions. I am far from a natural-born Hillary Clinton advocate, but during the course of the campaign there was simply no possibility that I would be voting for Trump, a man who who speaks against many of my deepest principles. And yet he won — by the slimmest of margins — but a clear win nonetheless.

On behalf of Ken and the entire Integral Life and Integral Institute staff I'd like to wish you the very best in this New Year. As ever, we are grateful to you for your love and support of the integral movement and the many ways you're exemplifying wholeness for a world in transition. As you take on new things this year I'd like to offer you what I learned in 2011 about how to integrate one's work in the world with the stillness of a spiritual practice....
