    Ep. #5: Building The Entrepreneur with Andrew Hutton of Day One

    Ep. #5: Building The Entrepreneur with Andrew Hutton of Day One

    I'm very excited to have Andrew Hutton on the show with me today Andrew was a former adjunct professor at Parsons school of design in New York, he was a principal design strategist Accenture and the head of business design at Human Ventures he is currently the founder and CEO of Day One which is a cohort based program for entrepreneurs and idea stage startups. What I really resonate with about Day One is that it's not just focused on helping entrepreneurs that have their sites set on vc funding, it's really about starting businesses and creating livelihoods and about getting into the right mindsets that are really tantamount to success and longevity as a business owner or running a business and those are some of the things we dive into on the show.
