At The Family, we believe that anyone can become a great entrepreneur.

Why? Because information is accessible, tools are cheap and capital isn't as necessary as it used to be years before, especially when you start.

So, if you want to build your own startup, all you need is... to get your hands dirty and work on your ambition!

This Podcast is made exactly for that, to help you learn and take action ;)

    #33: Fundraising 101 by Oussama Ammar, Co-founder at The Family

    #33: Fundraising 101 by Oussama Ammar, Co-founder at The Family

    Anyone asking you to work on a business plan while you’re still searching for a virtuous business model isn’t an investor you want. Who you raise money from is a key question - not every dollar is the same 💵  Good money comes when you can reverse the balance of power. Raising funds is like a mix between playing poker and buying a house. You need to go all in with your own cards. But you can’t keep a poker face in front of the landlord, because it could be a long-term relationship, and that should be based on honesty 🃏

    #32: Behind the scenes of the Payfit growth machine with Firmin Zocchetto

    #32: Behind the scenes of the Payfit growth machine with Firmin Zocchetto

    What happens when you live with your co-founder, first employee and your girlfriend for 3 years? You apparently end up with one of the fastest growing companies EVER! 😁 If anyone ever told you that giant companies don’t come out of Europe, well PayFit is on the verge of changing that! Since their launch PayFit grew to 200 employees in just 3 years, moved from 40m2, to 200m2, to 2000m2 offices and raised more than €$100M Million🔥

    And if you’ve ever seen somebody in love, thats how VCs look like when you mention serial entrepreneur, and CEO of PayFit, Firmin

    Only 26 years old Firmin is tackling one of the fastest and most convoluted industries - HR. According to Forbes the HR market is expected to be worth $30bn by 2025, and at the heart of all the incredible innovation is PayFit. 🚀

    If that didn’t pop your eyes out 👀, here is another insane fact: to realise the insanity behind PayFit they invented their own programming language Jetlang. 👾

    Harry Stebbings, partner at Stride and founder of The Twenty Minute VC joined us on stage to interview Firmin about his journey. Hope you enjoy it.
