The Podcast All Founders Should Listen To

I recently discovered this podcast and listened to the latest episode with Iris Choi from Floodgate. I’m ecstatic to have finally found this resource with high quality guests, and a host who adds real value to the conversation. Grace asks the questions I’m thinking, as I listen to her interviews, and her guests provide valuable, actionable responses. Investing an hour of your time listening to this podcast is investing directly in the success of your startup.

This was so well produced, and exactly what I needed at this stage. Congratulations on your success and your awards, and thank you for curating these exceptional conversations for us!
