In 2014, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban got attention when he talked about how he personally tries to combat bigotry and racism, weeks after the NBA banned former L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling over racist comments. Dany Levy told the devastating story of what went wrong after she sold her fashion email newsletter DailyCandy to Comcast for $125 million. And serial entrepreneur Steve Blank explained why a disproportionate number of successful founders come from dysfunctional families. (Hint: Turns out future CEOs learn important survival lessons in chaos.)

Michael Dell described ways entrepreneurs can combat cyber-security risk, Eileen Fisher divulged her most powerful leadership technique, and Life Is Good co-founder Bert Jacobs gave personal advice about starting a company for the first time.
