Startup Mindsets started as an idea to interview leaders in the startup and innovation space to use for book content. We then thought about using that audio to inspire and guide people in their startup journey's. Since April 2020, we've hosted 90 guests from founder/ceo, venture capitalists, to innovation leaders.
