This podcast is brought to you by Angelneers, a community of startup builders. We interview founders, operators, and technologists who have founded or helped built game-changing companies in the enterprise space.
You'll hear the guests sharing stories insights about how they got started, the lessons that they had learned, and the challenges they had to overcome during their journey that ultimately led them to success or failure. We believe that mapping the reasons for failure is no less valuable as it helps mitigate a survivorship bias of success stories that we all admire.
