From the interview, Private equity investor Mark Hauser in brief, the main points about Mark Hauser are that he studied economics in college, and then went on to start his own company primarily targeting the US military, before finally starting a private equity firm. By leveraging his clients’ money to make investments on the promise of profits, he is able to contribute and help society by putting his time and money towards other projects. His most recent project is a new venture capital firm that will target younger entrepreneurs that have new ideas for companies or are looking for funding. Some of his favorite things are: good people, family, experiences, and good food.
Perhaps the most important thing Mark Hauser has done is his charity work. Mark Hauser and his wife started a family foundation that targets early childhood literacy. The foundation focuses on grant writing and mentoring of people who want to do charity but do not have enough experience to know how to properly go about doing it. The goal is to “help people with heart and expertise make a difference in others’ lives.”
The next most important thing her has done for society is raising awareness for autism with the help of his son Ezra. Ezra was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a mild form of autism, at 18 months old. The father, who had been working hard all his life and did not have much time to spend with his family, began to spend time learning about Ezra’s condition, and then started giving talks on the subject all over the country. As he talked about autism more often, he realized that people did not really understand what it was, so he wrote a book titled “The Out-of-Sync Child: Recognizing and Coping with Sensory Processing Disorder” in 2003 (to explain what autism was,) and another titled “The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun: Activity Guide for Kids with Sensory Processing Disorder” in 2009 (to help parents of autistic children.
