MaiTai Global and Kiteboarding

In the debut of Skydeck, the new HBS alumni podcast series, Silicon Valley venture capitalist Bill Tai discusses his accidental ascent to kiteboarding entrepreneur


Bill Tai (MBA 1987) has built a whole professional community—that notably includes the likes of Richard Branson and Elon Musk—around the sport of kiteboarding. His nonprofit is called MaiTai Global, and it holds networking events that bring together entrepreneurs and adventurers alike to beaches everywhere from Norway to North Carolina. Tai talks here to Bulletin associate editor April White, about what exactly kiteboarding is, how he got into it, and how his hobby parallels his work.
