Startup HandMeDowns

By Startup HandMeDowns

The ultimate podcast for up and coming entrepreneurs. A show by up and coming entrepreneur Philip Kasumu from London sits down with investors, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders every week to find out what made them a success and how they got to where they are in today. But what makes this show different from any other business/entrepreneurial podcast is how each guest tells their story in detail allowing you to learn step by step how they did it what they did and in some cases why certain things didn't work.
