If you are looking to to start or grow a business, looking for funding or just want to understand the mindset of entrepreneurs and investors, this podcast is for you!

Rohit gives real world insights
As a founder I’m voracious in consuming startup podcasts; This week in start ups, recode, Y Combinator. Rohit provides the best insight on HOW to run your company rather than discussing the fluffy topics around it. The best podcast for someone wanting to know and understand best practices.
