This is the best-of from the first season of Mission First, the podcast-masterclass to learn from successful entrepreneurs changing the world for the better!
In Mission First, I interview entrepreneurs with a company mission related to the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
They have built successful companies: they have passed the first 3 years, have more than 15 employees, and are either already profitable, either growing exponentially with funding rounds backing them, either well-established NGOs.
In every interview we discuss during one to two hours of their challenges and what they learned. We tackle topics like funding, growth and business strategy, innovation and product development, leadership and recruiting.
Normally every episode lasts between 1h to 2h, so the first season is 12 hours 50 minutes in total.
I took 10 of the best hands-on tips and condensed them in 10 audio episodes of less than 10 minutes.
