    145 - Stephan Heller: A crazy 15-year startup journey incl. IPO and Scaling at Groupon, Building Watchmaster.com, Angel Investing and building a fund of fund vehicle now

    "There was so much pain that just went into this and so much blood, sweat, and tears, personal commitment, you know, working really for three, four years, not sleeping, not having a personal life in that sense. And suddenly this whole thing, that's to fall apart."

    It didn't take long for founder and entrepreneur Stephan Heller to move on and start something new after selling his previous company. In this episode, Stephan reflects on his experiences working with startups over the years and shares the lessons he's learned. We also learn about his current project, AlphaQ, which was founded with the goal of creating an innovative, unique fund of funds structure that has the vision of being listed on the stock exchange and thus democratizing access to venture capital.

Lieber Max,

Endlich mal ein guter Podcast, der sich inhaltlich vom „Geplänkel“ vieler - auch beliebter (warum auch immer) - Podcasts abhebt und praktische Ansätze liefert!
Ganz nach dem Motto von Gary Vaynerchuck, „You have to be practical“ folgst Du den richtigen Idealen und schaffst es, wirklich interessante Persönlichkeiten für Deinen Podcast zu gewinnen!

Weiter so!
