Forward Thinking Founders is a founder podcast where we interview high potential founders from networks like Y Combinator, The Thiel Fellowship, Product Hunt, Twitter, etc. and brings to light what they're building for the world. Think of it like the opposite of How I Built This, where we interview founders before they are successful, then if they are, we have a moment in time we can look back on in the early days. Does the model work? Look at our early interviews and you'll have your answer.

True startup podcast

Mat’s podcast is great in that he features founders in the earliest stage. This is the time that rarely is talked about yet when the passionate founders pour everything into the company to get it off the ground, literally starting up the company. I would say this a true startup podcast.

So good!

I really enjoyed speaking to Mat. Also enjoyed every episode I’ve listened to. Mat asks the core questions so entrepreneurs can share industry trends, the value of what they’re building as well as the challenges they face.
