About Episode 1

Going from innovation and first institutional investment to scalable business is hard and risky. We’ve done it ourselves as founders, and we’ve become good at helping other great companies make it.

We have passion for the technologies, the ideas and the business models that are changing our world. But most of all we love the dreamers, the engineers, the scientists and the creators that are making change happen. We want to share our knowledge with you.
