6 episodes

There are lots of podcasts out there.

So why’s this one exist?

Because 99% of startup founders are getting bad advice, and it's killing their chance to build a meaningful company.

I didn't make that number up.

Less than 1% of all businesses raise Venture Capital money, and only a small percentage of those (again, less than 1%) end up becoming "unicorns." Yet that's all we hear about. How can you raise money? How can you build something attractive to VCs?

This podcast is for entrepreneurs that want to build real businesses. Businesses that are profitable, businesses that customers love, and businesses that will transform the founder's life.

We'll focus on early tactics that allow you to go from idea to initial product without relying on funding.

These tactics will come from founders of businesses that have done it - we'll interview the founders of companies like Brooklinen, The Wirecutter, Luke's Lobster, and Baron Fig. We'll also have episodes with no guests where we drill down into actionable steps you can take to start making progress.

This podcast isn't meant to be something interesting that passes the time. It's meant to help you build your startup.

We've been doing this for four years at Tacklebox, helping nearly 200 idea-stage founders build amazing companies. We've seen what it did for them, and we want to help do it for you.

Episodes come out each Tuesday, starting April 23rd.

Great Conversations

Can’t describe it, just one of those pods where you feel like you are in the room instead of listening to an interview. Very inspiring.

Overflowing with startup wisdom!!

Brian asks all of my burning questions about entrepreneurship. This is the only podcast I listen to with a pen in my hand ready for notes the entire time. He masters the art of questioning by inquiring about all the different dimensions of being a start-up founder. To top it off, he's such an engaging conversationalist. If you've got a dream seed you want to harvest, make sure to subscribe to this podcast.
