011 - Thymia
It is a blessing and a pleasure to have Emilia Molimpakis and Stefano Goria of Thymia on the show. They're a great example of the value of Entrepreneur First: two highly technical founders that by applying their skillset in a business environment can identify and solve previously untouched problems. In the show, they talk about how they got early validation through customer calls (including a couple of funny experiences), being a female CEO on EF, and how much they love Notion.

To celebrate episode 010 Entrepreneur's Voice has snagged an interview with José and Yousef, who are working on Krew - a service which gives you access to 24/7, personalised advice from coaches, physios and nutritionists.

009 - Flow Bio
EV sits down with Stefan van der Fluit and Giovanni Rovere of Flow Bio. It's an absolute barnstormer of an episode, talking about how they handled a couple of early pivots - was it the idea or the team that needed changing? They open up about their team dynamics and what they do to keep it strong, and towards the end outline some effective tactics you can use in your own startup to schmooze advisors and keep the magic alive.

008 - Chris Lambert
David Pratt sitting down with Chris Lambert. In this one we discuss how Chris got into mining crypto from the room of his college at Oxford, and how that lead to him managing a trading network. It's also a great episode thanks to Chris's insight on the team building process, the timescale of starting a startup, and - of course - what it's all like in a remote environment.

007 - Youssef Darwich
Amita sits down with Youssef Darwich - the first employee of Tide - which he helped turn into a business with over 70,000 customers by the time he left. He's a product manager with a fintech edge, and despite Youssef being a Spurs fan, Entrepreneur's Verse loves this episode due to the natural passion you can hear from him talking about startups and personal growth.

Amita is back for the second episode of our sole founder series, playing host to Rebecca Brill. An experienced product manager with time at National Instruments with time at Uber, and having recently gained her MBA, Rebecca is interested in using technology to reduce the effects of abuse and discrimination. In this slice of audio goodness Rebecca also outlines the importance of personal compatibility with a co-founder, instead of it just being a good fit on paper (but if you're good with datasets that's a plus)
