I’m really excited about this episode. Today, we have a jam-packed episode full of startup advice, inspiring challenges, and an accelerator breakdown all in one with founder, Andrew Ive.
One of my favorite parts of this interview is the talk about startup ecosystems. Not only on how we think they are formed, but how they can be transferred. Other questions such as investing is also brought up. Why do people invest in companies? And has COVID changed the way we think of investing?
Last, I don’t think we’ve talked too much about the structure of accelerators on this podcast. Andrew delivers a breakdown of the flaws of a typical accelerator and what Big Ideas does differently to help accelerate their cohorts to the next level.
Though Big Idea Ventures only focuses on alternative meat innovation, don’t let that discourage you! There are plenty of problems in today’s world so the lessons here are transferrable and I hope that within this interview, you can find your big idea and try it out on the world.
