Great Podcast. A must listen for Founders

Great podcast. All episodes are a must listen for any founder that is looking to work with Wefunder or will be working with Wefunder on a campaign, regardless of their industry. Great information for general entrepreneurs as well. I’ll be launching a campaign with WeFunder in the near future and hearing how past founders achieved success on the platform is truly invaluable. I’m looking forward to learning more.

Great first show, keep it up!

I’m an investor in several companies on Wefunder, and I want to hear more founder stories like Klaus!

It’s great to learn from other entrepreneurs, and see the impact of our investment. I’m curious about the ones I did, and did not invest in ;)

One feedback is the show was geared towards founders rather than investors. I would focus on the latter but obviously depends on your goals for the podcast. For example Klaus started a company that went public, I’d like to learn more about that experience?! And less about the tactical advice which feels relevant to such a small audience.

In any case, great initiative Jonny and Katie! Keep on making ‘em.
