Great content and perfect to get a behind the scenes look of the life of some of the best CEOs, authors and others at the top of their fields.
Max Borges has an Awesome interview with David Mandelbrot!
As someone who interviews inventors...crowdfunding is a game changer and Max Borges interviewed the CEO of Indiegogo! I like that David brings up having your social network and email list built and ready before launching. I like that he said his platform is great for validating the market before investing serious money. Great for figuring out pricing. Better than borrowing from friends and families. Awesome headphone story about the inventors from Berkeley. I always wondered if companies paid attention to super-successful campaigns. It didn't surprise me to learn that GE and other large companies use Indiegogo.
I'm recommending this podcast to any inventor considering crowdfunding.
I’m in the conversation.
Love the content and style of this cast. I feel like I’m in the conversation but sitting back as not to interrupt the flow of ideas. Great content with the ability to implement the “ take aways “. Great job Max and crew.
