Episode transcript.


Rachael Lewis-Krisky, Host:

You’re a restless dreamer. An entrepreneur in the making. You have that great idea for a business that sets your imagination on fire. But where do you start?


Pedro Lau Semedo, CEO and Co-Founder of Kognitas: The idea that makes it just feels different. It just kicks you in the gut, as now this needs to be out there. With this one you will convince other people to come with you.


Rachael Lewis-Krisky, Host: You’re part developer, part marketer, part builder, doing it all with a small scrappy squad. The business has a foundation, but you want to make it stronger; make it last.


Gabe Monroy, CPO at DigitalOcean: There is a real failure in our industry around people building systems for a level of scale that they don’t need and they’re likely not going to need in the future.


Rachael Lewis-Krisky, Host: You are part of something bigger.


Wendy Zajack, Marketer and Educator: Marketers have to be citizens of the world, to be observers of human behavior in every dimension.


Tim Osborne, CTO and Co-Founder of Atom Learning: We’re very, very aware of, how easy it is to create something that’s incredibly negative for kids, and that can have an impact on their entire lives.


Admas Kanyagia, VP Social Impact at DigitalOcean: Are there competitive advantages in our business that could make sense to address a particular social problem?


Rachael Lewis-Krisky, Host: We understand who you are. And we want to help you thrive.
