In each episode, we take you behind closed doors to the critical moment when aspiring entrepreneurs put it all on the line.

A more down to earth Shark Tank

I’ve listened to every episode so far and really like the human centred approach that the investors take with the entrepreneurs. A lot of focus is put on the person behind the pitch with the understanding that even the greatest ideas fail without the right people behind them. The only thing I would like to see a bit more of is the format being mixed up a little more - the pitch, feedback, invest and call back is great but can get a little repetitive. I’ve really enjoyed some of the follow up episodes and wouldn’t mind having the chance to call in and ask past pitchers questions.

Great job guys!

Fantastic Podcast

What a wonderful podcast. Wish they could get more interesting pitches though. The latest ones haven't been as good.

Get rid of all investors except for Phil and Gillian.

Can be interesting but I unsubbed after the pitch where a recent drug addict proposed testing his rehab app on people in rehab WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE OR CONSENT and one of the investors said that it would be like watching "animals on the Savannah". The absolute pinnacle of silicon valley hubris and dehumanisation. Gimlet you must do better.
