The Conversations I Never Had!

Associated has been invaluable in giving me insight into the industry and helping me to navigate it. It also has some seriously valuable insights into not only how to plan your career going forwards, but also advice on the more personal sides to being a junior VC. The episodes are like the conversations I never had before entering the industry and they have become a staple in my weekly routine. Looking forward to the next one!

Really important, interesting and unique perspectives!

Venture capital can be quite opaque from the outside - but, with a great lineup of guests, Associated is some much-needed accessibility to the industry. Hearing from a different fund in each episode is pretty awesome, there’s always lots to learn!

My New Favourite Podcast

Great podcast and really useful for getting an understanding of the wider VC industry. It introduces the listener to an array of VCs (some I’d not heard of, others I had) with thoughtful questions from the interviewers, interesting guests who break down how they entered their industry, and (my favourite part) lot’s of further reading. I can’t wait for the next series!
