    Weird Growth by Ammo Marketing #9 - with Isabelle Goldfarb from Spacecubed - Why 1-on-1s are crucial to building community

    Weird Growth by Ammo Marketing #9 - with Isabelle Goldfarb from Spacecubed - Why 1-on-1s are crucial to building community

    It was a pleasure to have Plus Eight's Program Manager Isabelle Goldfarb on the show. She touched on her diverse startup experience, moving to Australia from Brazil and the importance of keeping it simple.

    When it comes to building community Isabelle says 1-on-1s are a must. If you want to build insights and truly understand your customers needs 1-on-1s can be a great source. This comes back to the common sentiment of doing things in the beginning that don't scale, so that when you do grow you grow with a product that people actually want.

    Weird Growth by Ammo Marketing #6 - with Iain McIntyre from Humm - Neurohacking and Unlocking Humanity's Potential

    While Iain was on his last visit to Western Australia we managed to catch him for an episode to give us an update on Humm.  Humm is a neurotechnology hardware startup that has gone from a few university graduates in Perth to a VC funded Silicon Valley startup in a few short years. New revolutions in brain science have allowed Humm to build the most accessible brain enhancing device ever. What's the catch? As Iain reveals in this episode "Hardware is hard" and what they are doing is such a moonshot that people often take some time to understand what they do and how their latest product a patch really does to your brain. Come with us now on a glimpse into the future of Neurohacking and how stimulating our brains might be the 20% we need to improve humanity.
