Om Podcasten

At Foundr, we’re on a mission to democratise entrepreneurial education, and on our way to building one of the largest online schools in the world for entrepreneurs. We interview some of the greatest founders of our generation (Mark Cuban, Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss, Tony Robbins, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John & many more) to find out how they did it, so you can too. However… in this series, we’re doing things a little differently. We’re working with our own students in our community, who are in the deep within the process of building their very own successful business. These are the founders of tomorrow, who’ve stood where you are- and are on the way to building the business of their dreams. Now, before we jump in-- our lawyers have told us to tell you this, of course we can't guarantee you will have results like some of the stories we’re about to share in this show, and as you know-- with any business it's a lot of hard work in addition to completing any online course. That said, welcome to ‘From Zero to Foundr’.
