After a year long break, I am excited to announce we are back to filming more Founders RAW conversations. We filled our need for a new film crew with the addition of Shinebox Films and quickly got to work to complete two new conversations.
For the uninitiated, here’s why I started Founders RAW:
“Founders RAW is actually an experiment. As founders of an early stage startup we quickly realized how difficult starting a company can be. And being part of the larger startup community in Seattle we discovered we weren’t alone in our crazy, mind-blowing experiences – apparently others have them too. The idea started to form once we noticed the frequency of finding ourselves 30 minutes deep in truth sharing and wisdom dropping conversations with founder friends. We wondered if others would be interested in what we have learned, so we figured why not to bring a camera. I guess we’ll see what happens.
Founders RAW is a video blog with conversation style interviews focused on bringing out raw stories early stage founders experience in their challenging entrepreneurial journeys. We invite founders to talk openly over a beer or a coffee about the “truth” of how they survive and grow their companies. We post the full conversations on the blog but really, who has time to watch 45 minutes of video? So we slice up the conversations and post nuggets each day as well as send out daily videos no more than 3 or 4 minutes long to blog subscribers. Now we all can receive daily nuggets of the entrepreneurial truth.”
This year’s guest’s will include founders from Ghostruck, Unikrn as well as a prominent Seattle Angel Investor along with others to follow. You will see more on those when we complete the editorial process, but I wanted to highlight a handful of conversations we had over the last few years to get you back in the mood.
