Pulled in two different directions by customers and investors, entrepreneurs experience very unique challenges. That’s why I’ve tapped the best entrepreneurs, founders, and A-List business leaders to create what I believe is the best podcast for startups.
My name is Justin Brady, and I host The Justin Brady Show. Every week, I amplify the best ideas, companies, entrepreneurs and people on earth. This is truly the best podcast for entrepreneurs, startups, and people who hate BS advice from fake founders.
A-List Startup Podcast Guests
The guests on The Justin Brady Show aren’t people with dreams, they’re founders of 5 Billion Dollar companies, adored brands, and highly respected disruptors. Here are just a few examples and why this podcast is the best podcast for startups.
Howard Schultz, Founder of Starbucks
Howard Schultz is the founder of Starbucks, the third-largest quick-serve restaurant brand in the world. He recounted his rags to riches story, and how he fought for his employee’s benefits, despite board and shareholder pressure.
Paul Allen, Founder of Ancestry.com
Paul Allen is the founder of Ancestry.com, which recently sold to Blackrock for nearly 5 billion dollars. If there’s any person who deserves to be on the best podcast for startups, this is your guy. He explains how he used public data, and overcame investor doubts to kick-off the 12 billion-dollar global geneology trend.
Amanda Goetz, Founder of House of Wise
House of Wise doesn’t have a one billion dollar valuation (yet), but this CBD-startup founder, Amanda Goetz, does a great job communicating the specifics of an early-stage scrappy startup. She explains how to enter a market you know nothing about, find investors, and launch while transitioning out of a full-time career.
Sam Parr, Founder of The Hustle
When everyone was playing the advertising game, Sam Parr of The Hustle was building a 2 million+ subscriber email list that covers startup land and fascinating topics. The writing is fun and playful, and their reader engagement is unbelievable, getting over 10 million monthly impressions. Startups know if The Hustle writes about them, their traffic will likely spike. That’s why this is the best podcast for startups.
Kurt Workman, Founder of Owlett
Kurt Workman is the founder of Owlett, a wearable startup focused on infant health. The company was the first of its kind to focus on the infant wearable market. Owlett had an estimated $20 million in revenue in 2016, and $25 million in 2017. Workman explains the challenges in product design for a market that gives you no feedback and provides a major usability challenge. Babies.
