Worth your time, and then some.

I’ve been lucky enough to have listened to EVERY episode.

Worth it.

There’s something to learn from all the conversations, from companies that have been around for decades like Terry Bicycles, Seventh Generation, and Ben & Jerry’s to recent stars like Game Theory, SunCommon, RenconciledIT, and international star Lime.

There’s even an episode featuring VPR’s superstar Jane Lindholm.

Key takeaways: fix a problem, be ready to pivot, and be prepared to make unexpected connections. And, you CAN build a company in Vermont!

Quit reading reviews and start listening!

Start Here for Awesome Business Podcast

One of the best podcasts I’ve heard! Sam and Dave really get into the meat of the conversation quickly with the entrepreneur. They blend humor with technical with the larger context of being a human and entrepreneur, creating an accessible, enjoyable, meaningful listening experience. As a listener of many business podcasts, Start Here has quickly risen to the top. Kick up your feet, grab your queso, and get ready to be impressed.

Great insights on Vermont's entrepreneurial environment

Really enjoying the series. Got hooked on the Howard Pierce interview and have since listened to the whole series. A great collection of Vermont-based success stories. Much to learn from these business visionaries. Thanks!
