Daniel Kendi ,

One of the best investing podcasts out there!

Beside choosing carefully each of the topics related to the startup ecosystem The Full Ratched brings different use cases and guests that have deep knowledge of investing strategies and the fundamental topics in venture capital. I am coming here not as an investor but as an entrepreneur looking to understand the dynamics of the fundraising proccess and prepare for my next steps. Nick understands that and welcome entepreneurs and investors to reach him in a 20min talk accessible in his website. Great guests, updated content and easy to listen!

Best VC podcast

After a long time searching for a podcast that could actually give me valuable information about the venture capital system I finally found it. The Full Ratchet has it all - it starts with all the fundamentals and keeps evolving into more complex and specific themes, but always in a easy going coversation. As a non-native speaker and as someone that lives in a country where the VC system is considerably different, I can assure you all that Nick and his guests can always give you a clear view of the subject that they bring to discussion, and a great part of that is due to the format created by Nick to this show, in a Q&A program with guests that no only dominate the topic, but are also reference in their field (and have plenty of experience to illustrate the subject). That is another strong point of this podcast, besides a great content, you get to know a little part of what these bigshots think, and even their contact references (and preferences!).

Finally, I must say that Nick also deserves a 5 star evaulation. Besides using his network to bring notable guests to this show, we can see that he deeply cares about the quality of The Full Ratchet. Once I sent him an e-mail, asking his point of view on a specific investment opportunity and he answered me giving some reflection points that really helped me on my final decision (I passed that investment).

I already listened to +-10 podcasts about startups & VC, and The Full Ratchet is clearly the best one in all aspects.
