It’s not often we hear of an entrepreneur under the age of ten, but Ioannis Antypas claims to have been making money and spotting an opportunity since the tender age of nine years old, when he decided to start selling bottled water to school friends – as well as their parents! He’s got vast experience in the hospitality industry, and says his latest brainwave was triggered by being served a cold steak in a restaurant.

This is Moneyball: How to start a sports team from scratch
Starting a sports team from scratch and taking them to glory: it sounds like something out of a computer game rather than real life. This week, assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost are joined by a man who recently helped start a new basketball team in Britain – the London City Royals. Just how do you go about starting a whole new team – or franchise – and get them off the ground? Jon Sawyer, who has an impressive CV holding senior positions at Disney, Hilton and Pret reveals all. Playing basketball in Britain is immensely popular, so can the basketball league here grow in stature? And will we ever seen the next big player in the NBA come from these shores? How does funding and TV rights work, what does it take to run a sports team day-to-day and can professional basketball help kids avoid the dangers of gang life?

This is Moneyball: Match fixing in sport
It is a subject that makes fans boil with anger and ask: just how and why would any professional do it? Aren't they already paid enough for a job many of us would love to do? In the This is Moneyball season 3 opener, assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost tackle this tricky subject and are joined by someone who was swept up in the madness. Centre-back Moses Swaibu – a former Crystal Palace youth player – became one of the first names on the team sheet for Lincoln City in the late-2000s. However, he became embroiled in match-fixing as he slipped down to semi-professional level. For the first time, Moses candidly tells his story, how it unfolded, his regret and why a stint in jail helped him realise that he needed to make sure young players aren't tempted to make the same mistakes.

Track Record: Dave Coplin
Dave Coplin recently left Microsoft after ten years as CEO (Chief Envisioning Officer!) and now runs The Envisioners, his own company dedicated to helping companies manage future technology. He’s an in-demand speaker and writer. His first proper job was in an Apple store, and he urges us to be less cautious and fearful about technology, especially where our children are concerned. He says he still takes inspiration from a former boss and mentor, whose management style was to ‘sit quietly at the back and let things unfold with his encouragement.’ Listen as he urges us to get out of the 9-5 commuter, “bums in seats” mentality many corporations still have, and instead to use technology – such as laptops – as they were supposed to be used: to encourage a new way of working, rather than sticking to an outdated model of what work should be.
