Great podcast!

This is a great podcast that I just subscribed to. Even though Mike has only released one full episode with Jay, the episode contained lots of valuable content helping me understand early-stage investing. Venture Capital has always been one of my interests and I also run my own b2c ecommerce business, so this content is very relevant.

Loving Mike's enthusiasm!

Venture capital is a subject that I don't know much about, but what I love about podcasts is that I can always explore new topics. There's only 1 episode so far but Mike interviewing Jay Kapoor made venture capital very digestible. Already a subscriber and looking forward to what's to come.
