GLG President and CEO Alexander Saint-Amand talks with Recode's Kara Swisher about running a learning platform for investors and business professionals. Saint-Amand describes the company as "Uber meets Harvard" because it facilitates on-demand and one-on-one conversations between customers and experts from a wide range of subjects, including faculty of universities like Stanford, Harvard and Duke. He explains why other attempts to revolutionize learning online have fizzled out and how GLG is able to offer "millions of courses" without breaking the bank.

"I was fascinated by the strident tone-deaf insistence by Alexander Saint-Amand that his company was "Uber meets Harvard." If you're trying to prove you live in a self-absorbed bubble that the real world has no impact on, comparing your company to one which is proud of its appalling behaviour and complete lack of ethics is an excellent way of doing just that. Talk about brand sabotage."
