Topic:

Creating successful companies and launching podcasts are big accomplishments, but to Andy Bowers its second nature. When starting something new, Bowers believes that you should just start instead of worrying about making it perfect.

Join us on March 17 to learn Andy’s personal frameworks and techniques he’s applied throughout his career when starting something new. These include:

  • How to think of your audience as your co-producer
  • Don’t reinvent the wheel. Find things that worked in the past rather than starting from scratch entirely.
  • Why segmenting your audience is important
  • Don’t go for perfect – just start.
  • How to avoid bias
  • And more

Since 2005, Bowers has created or helped create dozens of podcasts. In fact, NY Times editor refers to Bowers as “The Godfather of Podcasting”. Podcasts he has launched include Revisionist History with Malcolm Gladwell, the scripted dramas Passenger List, The Message and LifeAfter, Empire on Blood, Happier with Gretchen Rubin, The Walk, the Slate Gabfests, The Gist, Trumpcast, Family Ghosts, By the Book, and many others.

In 2015, Bowers cofounded Megaphone (formerly Panoply), a podcast analytics and content management system, which was later acquired by Spotify.

Testimonials

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.

David Plonsky

The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.

Chaitanya Vaidya

We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.

Doug Lessing

FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.

Becky Splitt

We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.

Max Linares

There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.

Jarie Bolander

It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.

Terence Finn

I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
