Reflection and planning are deeply intertwined — in order to move forward, you have to know where you’re coming from.
That was the premise behind the first ever podcast episode of the Startup Capital series. Startup Capital TLH, founded mid 2016, began as an interview series focused on spotlighting and supporting Tallahassee startups and entrepreneurs. Now, it’s coming to your ears in podcast form.
In this introductory episode, Lucas Lindsay, executive director at Domi Station and the host of Startup Capital Season 2, speaks with Cuttlesoft’s Frank Valcarcel, Emily Morehouse-Valcarcel, and Nick Farrell about the origin, goals, and outcomes of the series.
Before jumping in, each participant took time to study the interviews of Season 1 to determine the major themes of the Season 1 interviews. Those themes include:
Startup culture Entrepreneurial ecosystems Talent acquisition and retention Tech education Diversity & inclusion In this cross-country conversation between Lindsey and Farrell in Tallahassee and the Valcarcels in Denver, CO, these themes are discussed and dissected.
How are entrepreneurs making the most of Tallahassee’s business resources? How can universities better adapt to the changing demands of the workplace? Tune in to learn the answers to these questions and others during Startup Capital: Season 2, Episode 1.
