The Founder to Founder Podcast

By Phil Hayes St Clair

Phil Hayes-St Clair (@philhsc) makes this show and writes about company building each week because increasing collective wisdom is essential. In entrepreneurship, that wisdom comes from founders. The Founder To Founder podcast surfaces how experienced founders overcome challenges and mistakes to build great companies. These are stories from the startup trenches and Phil's way to help others take their idea from zero to one, and beyond. Thanks for listening!
