What do you do and why?
I am a process scientist, which means that I study how energy flows through the universe and then apply that knowledge to business. My work empowers businesses of all kinds to automate, scale and grow in a way which is sustainable, data-driven and efficient. I do this type of work because it is my passion – I love understanding the scientific mechanics of business organisms and helping them receive more energy so they can reach their full potential.
What change would you like to enact in the world?
Current statistics show that 44% of businesses will fail within their first 5 years. My work provides businesses with a blueprint to survive — and thrive. So I would like to see this discipline of process science spread more widely and contribute to improving that business survival rate in a meaningful way. In addition to supporting business survival, my dream is to see this new generation of businesses become more socially and spiritually conscious. It is in this way that people can evolve a greater awareness of how good business balances the energy flowing through nature, humans, and the business itself.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
My favorite animal is the bat. I have a tattoo of a bat, and as part of our corporate social responsibility efforts, my company works with organizations like Bat Conservation International to bring visibility and support to preserving their position in the global ecosystem.
Why did you join IVY?
As a young entrepreneur in NYC, IVY offered a great opportunity to connect with other likeminded individuals and share knowledge, support, and camaraderie.
What has been your most memorable IVY experience?
I loved the lecture “the perils of empathy: how to make an ethical decision” by Yale professor Dr. Paul Bloom. It was a fascinating topic that really made me think, well presented, and spurred great conversation over cocktails with other members afterward!
Sam Chin is the co-founder and chief process scientist for Cavi Consulting, a process science consultancy helping businesses to remove obstacles to energy flow and more effectively automate, scale and grow. His first book Becoming A Conscious Business describes Sam’s a personal journey of study and enlightenment which led him to a new paradigm for business: the discipline of process science. Process science is the study of the universal truths of energy flow and human consciousness and the application of this knowledge to life and business. It sits at the intersection of science and spirituality. You can download the book for free by clicking here.
