Meet Mr. Stewart: A Conversation at Sea with a Community Innovator

Summary

Greetings Virtual Passengers!

I nabbed a really tall fellow for this episode…I mean really tall! 

Louis Stewart currently is the Head of Strategic Initiatives for NVIDIA’s global Developer Ecosystem. In his role, he is responsible for working with minority serving institutions, government entities, industry partners and a variety of affinity groups to build relationships that enable an increase in tech preparedness, grow the overall developer base and foster a more inclusive AI community.

Louis (we call him Mr. Stewart) served as the City of Sacramento’s first Chief Innovation Officer before joining NVIDIA. His role within the City was to promote and drive long term economic growth and job creation through innovation. Mr. Stewart was focused on bridging the public-private divide, reducing process, and growing a strong and vibrant business community. He also encouraged an innovation-driven economy by supporting entrepreneurs, revenue-generating businesses and the creation of high quality jobs.

Prior to his role with the City of Sacramento, he spent 7 years serving as California’s Deputy Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development. In that capacity he oversaw the coordination and promotion of innovative programs, activities, and emerging technologies throughout the State. He managed a robust statewide innovation-based economic development support network of regional innovation clusters called the California Innovation Hubs (iHubs). Mr. Stewart has served in various public sector roles for the past 13 years. His professional experience also includes 17 years in the private sector in sales, marketing, business diversity and information technology.

Mr. Stewart is a service based leader who embodies the belief that he cannot be a success without helping others be successful.

Mr. Stewart grew up in France and Italy, and played professional basketball in Peru and Belgium. Mr. Stewart is a Nehemiah Sr. Fellow for Innovation & Entrepreneurship and received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Santa Clara University.

Find him on Twitter and Instagram as @MeetMrStewart or at meetmrstewart.com

Join Louis and I on a voyage with several interesting ports of call, including:

  • pivoting
  • resilience
  • listening (and translating)
  • innovation
  • thought leadership
  • relationships

Lewis is a down to earth guy, and this episode offers humor, many insightful topics, words of wisdom and designer sock references. And yes, I got a chance to listen to A$AP Ferg. Time to find a shovel! LOL

Have a listen to the conversation with Louis, an Executive Leader, Innovation Strategist, Global Relationship Builder, Board Member, Speaker and Mentor!

Cheers,
