From this knowledge I've doubled my business to $500k a year. Love your passion and recommend your podcast to everyone.”“Without a doubt, the highest value-to-cost ratio I've taken advantage of in the last year is the Founders podcast premium feed. Tap into eons of knowledge and experiences, condensed into digestible portions. Highly, highly recommend. “Uniquely outstanding. No fluff and all substance. David does an outstanding job summarizing these biographies and hones in on the elements that make his subjects so unique among entrepreneurs. I particularly enjoy that he focuses on both the founder's positive and negative characteristics as a way of highlighting things to mimic and avoid.”“I just paid for my first premium podcast subscription for Founders podcast. Learning from those who came before us is one of the highest value ways to invest time. David does his homework and exponentially improves my efficiency by focusing on the most valuable lessons.”“I haven't found a better return on my time and money than your podcast for inspiration and time-tested wisdom to help me on my journey."I have listened to every episode released and look forward to every episode that comes out.

You add a new layer to the books I've already read and make connections to ones I haven't, but now must read."“I have listened to many podcasts on entrepreneurship (HIBT, Masters of Scale, etc.) and find Founders to be consistently more helpful than any other entrepreneurship podcast. David is a craftsperson, he carefully reads biographies of founders, distills the most important anecdotes and themes from their life, and draws commonalities across lives. David's focus is rightfully not on teaching you a formula to succeed but on constantly pushing you to think different.”“I highly highly recommend this podcast. Holy cow. I've been binge listening to these and you start to see patterns across all these incredible humans.”Listening to your podcast has changed my life and that is not a statement I make often.“After one episode I quickly joined the Misfit feed.

Stefano Cascavilla"Essere mille"Guida allo sbarco in Sicilia per aspiranti garibaldiniExòrma Edizionihttp://www.exormaedizioni.com/Essere Mille è la storia di un'avventura e una guida. La riscoperta dello straordinario cammino che percorsero i Mille, da Marsala a Palermo, tra l'11 e il 30 maggio del 1860.Partendo dai diari e dai resoconti dei garibaldini, Stefano Cascavilla accompagna il lettore sulla polvere delle campagne siciliane, tra fichi d'india, bagli abbandonati e panorami sbalorditivi. L'autore alterna il racconto del proprio cammino a quello dei Mille, e costruisce una guida pratica, suddivisa in dieci tappe e corredata di cartografia, per affrontare il percorso in autonomia.Prefazione di Stefano ArditoInciampato quasi per caso in questa avventura risorgimentale, relegata alla polvere delle reminiscenze scolastiche, Stefano Cascavilla ricerca per campagne e città di oggi le tracce del passaggio di quell'esercito di combattenti.Un passo dopo l'altro, tra gli uliveti e i mari di Sicilia, le agavi e le masserie addormentate, è catturato da una storia straordinaria, avvincente e ancora viva nei luoghi e nella memoria. Ricostruisce esattamente il percorso delle truppe garibaldine, lo traccia, lo descrive rendendolo così replicabile e soprattutto facendoci venire voglia di riviverne l'atmosfera.Essere Mille diventa così anche una guida tecnica, corredata di cartografia e di tutte le indicazioni necessarie, che rende possibile a chiunque provare a essere, per una settimana, uno dei Mille. Il novello garibaldino troverà lungo tutto il tracciato un segnale visibile (uno stencil) che l'autore ha lasciato a indicare ognuna delle tappe raggiunte: sarà il volto di Giuseppe Garibaldi (proprio lui), una figura rossa stilizzata su un muro, a incitare e guidare il viandante del terzo millennio.Stefano CascavillaÈ nato a Roma dove vive e lavora. Laureato in Economia, ha collaborato a lungo con General Motors per poi conseguire una laurea in Architettura e fondare uno studio di progettazione. Ha approfondito lo studio del Feng Shui e delle discipline tradizionali di progettazione. Istruttore di alpinismo, dal 2012 attraversa a piedi l'Europa in solitaria, ripercorrendo i grandi cammini dell'antichità.

Motores de agua, de aire comprimido o magnéticos, coches para gente joven, urbanos de alta tecnología, superdeportivos franco-alemanes, canadienses o rusos, marcas ecológicas… os he preparado una lista de 10 proyectos del mundo del automóvil, la mayoría de ellos realidades, que tienen un rasgo en común: Fueron un auténtico fracaso. Esta idea surge de las charlas que tenemos en el área de miembros y la idea no comenzó con un listado, sino por una serie de normas que hay que seguir si no quieres fracasar en el mundo del motor. Estas 10 normas son fruto de esas reflexiones… Decálogo para no fracasar. Primero: Si alguien no lo ha hecho antes… seguramente es por algo. No te hagas líos, si ninguna marca ha inventado el motor de agua… a lo mejor es que no puede hacerse. Segundo: Zapatero a tus zapatos. Si eres bueno haciendo aspiradoras, secadores de manos y de pelo y otros electrodomésticos… ¿De verdad te tienes que meter a hacer coches? Tercero: El papel lo aguanta todo. Esta frase, muy habitual en el mundo de los negocios, quiere decir que un plan de negocios, sobre el papel, puede ser muy bueno… pero la realidad es tozuda. Cuarto: Si eres una marca Premium haz coches Premium. Y si eres una marca generalista haz coches populares. Son tantos los ejemplos, que no pierdo más tiempo explicando esto. Quinto: Si quieres hacer un coche barato, usa soluciones baratas. Tratar de hacer un modelo básico y ciudadano, con tecnología y materiales de coche deportivo o de lujo, no suele funcionar. Sexto: Si tu país nunca ha hecho coches de altas prestaciones y tecnología avanzada… no suele ser una buena idea fabricar coches complejos en países sin tecnología y tradición en coches tecnológicos. Séptimo: Si quieres hacer el coche más caro, más potente y más rápido del Mundo… piensa si de verdad eso es lo que quiere el mercado. Octavo: La energía ni se crea ni se destruye, solamente se transforma. Si has inventado el motor de movimiento continuo… seguro que te has equivocado en algo. Noveno: Si aspiras a llegar un público concreto, ¿por qué no investigas que quiere ese público concreto? Puedes ahorrarte disgustos. Décimo: En general, en los negocios, usa más la cabeza que el corazón. Pues bien, estas son las reglas que nos hemos inventado entre todos. Seguramente hay más, pero algunas de ellas no las cumplieron estos diez casos que os traigo de muestra. 1. Air Car. El motor “de aire”. Guy Nègre presentó en el Salón de Paris de 1991 un motor de aire comprimido. El ingeniero francés fallecía en 2016 sin conseguir llevar a la producción su proyecto Air Car. 2. Bugatti Veyron. La casa por la ventana. Sólo te digo una cosa: El grupo VAG perdió con este coche 1.703.875.000 euros, más de 4 millones por unidad vendida… menos mal que solo se fabricaron 369. 3. Bricklin. Made in Canadá. ¿Conoces a muchos fabricantes de automóviles de Canadá? Ni tú ni nadie, sencillamente, porque no hay. Y eso lo quiso arreglar Bricklin fabricando un automóvil deportivo, denominado SV-1. 4. Dyson. Un coche no es un aspirador. Si eres bueno haciendo aspiradoras, secadores de manos y de pelo, y otros electrodomésticos, ¿para que narices te complicas la vida? 5. Brady. Procesado por estafa. Michael J. Brady consiguió llamar la atención de algunos compradores con su motor basado en la fuerza magnética que era a la vez generador y motor a los que vendió la idea… el inventor nunca llegó a entregar esos motores y fue procesado por estafa en 2010. 6. Marussia. Superdeportivo ruso. El showman ruso Nikolai Fomenko, en 2007, fundó esta empresa con el objetivo de comercializar superdeportivos rusos. Marussia comenzó a aparecer en los salones del automóvil, se hicieron un par de docenas de prototipos con diferentes motores… pero, el dinero se acabó y Marussia acabó en bancarrota. 7. Meyer: Motor de agua. Stanley Meyer, un extravagante inventor norteamericano, dijo que había inventado un motor que funcionaba con agua. En la España de los setenta también Arturo Estévez propuso un motor de agua de su invención. Necesitaba agua… y boro, un elemento más caro que la gasolina… sin comentarios. 8. Saturn. El fracaso de la ecología. La crisis del petróleo hizo mucho daño a la industria americana del automóvil, poco preocupada hasta entonces por el consumo de sus coches. Así que a principios de la década de 1980 General Motors creó la marca Saturn, con una marcada orientación ecológica y con su propia red de concesionarios. Desapareció en 2010. 9. Scion. Toyota también se equivoca. En 2002, en el salón de Nueva York, se presenta la marca Scion, dirigida a la gente joven. Y en 2016 se cerró. 10. Smart Fortwo. Pequeño pero no barato. Swatch arrasaba con sus relojes “baratos” y atractivos, y Nicola Hayek quiso hacer lo mismo con los coches. Resultado: Unas pérdidas de 3.349.582.400 euros.

General Motors is in the process of reinventing itself as a major EV maker. One way it hopes to separate itself from the pack is its Ultium technology. GM's expertise in electric vehicles is making vehicles like the new 2022 GMC Hummer EV more efficient. In this week's episode of “America on the Road” we go behind the scenes with one of Ultium's experts. Our special guest is Lawrence Ziehr, General Motors Ultium Energy Recovery Project Manager. In an in-depth interview, he tells Host Jack Nerad how the Ultium team gets more efficiency from its unique batteries. It's insightful, leading-edge stuff so stick around for that. In the road test segment, Co-Host Chris Teague puts the 2022 Hyundai Kona N-Line through its paces. Is the Kona N-Line a crossover SUV? Or is it a hot hatch in disguise? Chris Teague and Jack Nerad will share their opinions on that and tell you how the Kona N-Line relates on the value scale. Also in the road test segment, Jack Nerad takes a detailed look at the 2022 Kia Sorento X-Line SX Prestige AWD. The Sorento submodel is designed to have enhanced off-road capabilities. At the same time, it is chockfull of luxury features that help make it a very attractive choice in the hotly contested three-row crossover SUV segment. In the news, some prominent carmakers are asking Congress to lift the cap on the tax credit for electric vehicle purchases. Is it a wise move that will move the needle on global climate change? Or is it a money grab by automakers looking to leverage taxpayer money into more sales for themselves? We'll have the details and our reactions to that coming up. Also in the news, BMW has announced the test of a new battery that could offer EVs 750 miles of range on a charge. We'll give you more on this potential breakthrough coming up in this episode of “America on the Road.”

Lars Magnus Ericsson was working for the Swedish government that made telegraph equipment in the 1870s when he started a little telegraph repair shop in 1976. That was the same year the telephone was invented. After fixing other people's telegraphs and then telephones he started a company making his own telephone equipment. He started making his own equipment and by the 1890s was shipping gear to the UK. As the roaring 20s came, they sold stock to buy other companies and expanded quickly. Early mobile devices used radios to connect mobile phones to wired phone networks and following projects like ALOHANET in the 1970s they expanded to digitize communications, allowing for sending early forms of text messages, the way people might have sent those telegraphs when old Lars was still alive and kicking. At the time, the Swedish state-owned Televerket Radio was dabbling in this space and partnered with Ericsson to take first those messages then as email became a thing, email, to people wirelessly using the 400 to 450 MHz range in Europe and 900 MHz in the US. That standard went to the OSI and became a 1G wireless packet switching network we call Mobitex. Mike Lazaridis was born in Istanbul and moved to Canada in 1966 when he was five, attending the University of Waterloo in 1979. He dropped out of school to take a contract with General Motors to build a networked computer display in 1984. He took out a loan from his parents, got a grant from the Canadian government, and recruited another electrical engineering student, Doug Fregin from the University of Windsor, who designed the first circuit boards. to join him starting a company they called Research in Motion. Mike Barnstijn joined them and they were off to do research.  After a few years doing research projects, they managed to build up a dozen employees and a million in revenues. They became the first Mobitex provider in America and by 1991 shipped the first Mobitex device. They brought in James Balsillie as co-CEO, to handle corporate finance and business development in 1992, a partnership between co-CEOs that would prove fruitful for 20 years.  Some of those work-for-hire projects they'd done involved reading bar codes so they started with point-of-sale, enabling mobile payments and by 1993 shipped RIMGate, a gateway for Mobitex. Then a Mobitex point-of-sale terminal and finally with the establishment of the PCMCIA standard, a  PCMCIP Mobitex modem they called Freedom. Two-way paging had already become a thing and they were ready to venture out of PoS systems. So  in 1995, they took a $5 million investment to develop the RIM 900 OEM radio modem. They also developed a pager they called the Inter@ctive Pager 900 that was capable of  two-way messaging the next year. Then they went public on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 1997. The next year, they sold a licensing deal to IBM for the 900 for $10M dollars. That IBM mark of approval is always a sign that a company is ready to play in an enterprise market. And enterprises increasingly wanted to keep executives just a quick two-way page away. But everyone knew there was a technology convergence on the way. They worked with Ericsson to further the technology and over the next few years competed with SkyTel in the interactive pager market. Enter The Blackberry They knew there was something new coming. Just as the founders know something is coming in Quantum Computing and run a fund for that now. They hired a marketing firm called Lexicon Branding to come up with a name and after they saw the keys on the now-iconic keyboard, the marketing firm suggested BlackBerry. They'd done the research and development and they thought they had a product that was special. So they released the first BlackBerry 850 in Munich in 1999. But those were still using radio networks and more specifically the DataTAC network. The age of mobility was imminent, although we didn't call it that yet. Handspring and Palm each went public in 2000.  In 2000, Research In Motion brought its first cellular phone product in the BlackBerry 957, with push email and internet capability. But then came the dot com bubble. Some thought the Internet might have been a fad and in fact might disappear. But instead the world was actually ready for that mobile convergence. Part of that was developing a great operating system for the time when they released the BlackBerry OS the year before. And in 2000 the BlackBerry was named Product of the Year by InfoWorld.  The new devices took the market by storm and shattered the previous personal information manager market, with shares of that Palm company dropping by over 90% and Palm OS being setup as it's own corporation within a couple of years. People were increasingly glued to their email. While the BlackBerry could do web browsing and faxing over the internet, it was really the integrated email access, phone, and text messaging platform that companies like General Magic had been working on as far back as the early 1990s. The Rise of the BlackBerry The BlackBerry was finally the breakthrough mobile product everyone had been expecting and waiting for. Enterprise-level security, integration with business email like Microsoft's Exchange Server, a QWERTY keyboard that most had grown accustomed to, the option to use a stylus, and a simple menu made the product an instant smash success. And by instant we mean after five years of research and development and a massive financial investment. The Palm owned the PDA market. But the VII cost $599 and the BlackBerry cost $399 at the time (which was far less than the $675 Inter@ctive Pager had cost in the 1990s). The Palm also let us know when we had new messages using the emerging concept of push notifications. 2000 had seen the second version of the BlackBerry OS and their AOL Mobile Communicator had helped them spread the message that the wealthy could have access to their data any time. But by 2001 other carriers were signing on to support devices and BlackBerry was selling bigger and bigger contracts. 5,000 devices, 50,000 devices, 100,000 devices. And a company called Kasten Chase stepped in to develop a secure wireless interface to the Defense Messaging System in the US, which opened up another potential two million people in the defense industry They expanded the service to cover more and more geographies in 2001 and revenues doubled, jumping to 164,000 subscribers by the end of the year. That's when they added wireless downloads so could access all those MIME attachments in email and display them. Finally, reading PDFs on a phone with the help of GoAmerica Communications! And somehow they won a patent for the idea that a single email address could be used on both a mobile device and a desktop. I guess the patent office didn't understand why IMAP  was invented by Mark Crispin at Stanford in the 80s, or why Exchange allowed multiple devices access to the same mailbox. They kept inking contracts with other companies. AT&T added the BlackBerry in 2002 in the era of GSM. The 5810 was the first truly convergent BlackBerry that offered email and a phone in one device with seamless SMS communications. It shipped in the US and the 5820 in Europe and Cingular Wireless jumped on board in the US and Deutsche Telekom in Germany, as well as Vivendi in France, Telecom Italia in Italy, etc. The devices had inched back up to around $500 with service fees ranging from $40 to $100 plus pretty limited data plans. The Tree came out that year but while it was cool and provided a familiar interface to the legions of Palm users, it was clunky and had less options for securing communications. The NSA signed on and by the end of the year they were a truly global operation, raking in revenues of nearly $300 million.  The Buying Torndado They added web-based application in 2003, as well as network printing. They moved to a Java-based interface and added the 6500 series, adding a walkie-talkie function. But that 6200 series at around $200 turned out to be huge. This is when they went into that thing a lot of companies do - they started suing companies like Good and Handspring for infringing on patents they probably never should have been awarded. They eventually lost the cases and paid out tens of millions of dollars in damages. More importantly they took their eyes off innovating, a common mistake in the history of computing companies. Yet there were innovations. They released Blackberry Enterprise Server in 2004 then bolted on connectors to Exchange, Lotus Domino, and allowed for interfacing with XML-based APIs in popular enterprise toolchains of the day. They also later added support for GroupWise. That was one of the last solutions that worked with symmetric key cryptography I can remember using and initially required the devices be cradled to get the necessary keys to secure communications, which then worked over Triple-DES, common at the time. One thing we never liked was that messages did end up living at Research in Motion, even if encrypted at the time. This is one aspect that future types of push communications would resolve. And Microsoft Exchange's ActiveSync.  By 2005 there were CVEs filed for BlackBerry Enterprise Server, racking up 17 in the six years that product shipped up to 5.0 in 2010 before becoming BES 10 and much later Blackberry Enterprise Mobility Management, a cross-platform mobile device management solution. Those BES 4 and 5 support contracts, or T-Support, could cost hundreds of dollars per incident. Microsoft had Windows Mobile clients out that integrated pretty seamlessly with Exchange. But people loved their Blackberries. Other device manufacturers experimented with different modes of interactivity. Microsoft made APIs for pens and keyboards that flipped open. BlackBerry added a trackball in 2006, that was always kind of clunky. Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, and others were experimenting with new ways to navigate devices, but people were used to menus and even styluses. And they seemed to prefer a look and feel that seemed like what they used for the menuing control systems on HVAC controls, video games, and even the iPod.  The Eye Of The Storm A new paradigm was on the way. Apple's iPhone was released in 2007 and Google's Android OS in 2008. By then the BlackBerry Pearl was shipping and it was clear which devices were better. No one saw the two biggest threats coming. Apple was a consumer company. They were slow to add ActiveSync policies, which many thought would be the corporate answer to mobile management as group policies in Active Directory had become for desktops. Apple  and Google were slow to take the market, as BlackBerry continued to dominate the smartphone industry well into 2010, especially once then-president Barack Obama strong-armed the NSA into allowing him to use a special version of the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition for official communiques. Other world leaders followed suit, as did the leaders of global companies that had previously been luddites when it came to constantly being online. Even Eric Schmidt, then chairman of google loved his Crackberry in 2013, 5 years after the arrival of Android. Looking back, we can see a steady rise in iPhone sales up to the iPhone 4, released in 2010. Many still said they loved the keyboard on their BlackBerries. Organizations had built BES into their networks and had policies dating back to NIST STIGs. Research in Motion owned the enterprise and held over half the US market and a fifth of the global market. That peaked in 2011. BlackBerry put mobility on the map. But companies like AirWatch, founded in 2003 and  MobileIron, founded in 2007, had risen to take a cross-platform approach to the device management aspect of mobile devices. We call them Unified Endpoint Protection products today and companies could suddenly support BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and iPhones from a single console. Over 50 million Blackberries were being sold a year and the stock was soaring at over $230 a share.  Today, they hold no market share and their stock performance shows it. Even though they've pivoted to more of a device management company, given their decades of experience working with some of the biggest and most secure companies and governments in the world. The Fall Of The BlackBerry The iPhone was beautiful. It had amazing graphics and a full touch screen. It was the very symbol of innovation. The rising tide of the App Store also made it a developers playground (no pun intended). It was more expensive than the Blackberry, but while they didn't cater to the enterprise, they wedged their way in there with first executives and then anyone. Initially because of ActiveSync, which had come along in 1996 mostly to support Windows Mobile, but by Exchange Server 2003 SP 2 could do almost anything Outlook could do - provided software developers like Apple could make the clients work. So by 2011, Exchange clients could automatically locate a server based on an email address (or more to the point based on DNS records for the domain) and work just as webmail, which was open in almost every IIS implementation that worked with Exchange. And Office365 was released in 2011, paving the way to move from on-prem Exchange to what we now call “the cloud.” And Google Mail had been around for 7 years by then and people were putting it on the BlackBerry as well, blending home and office accounts on the same devices at times. In fact, Google licensed Exchange ActiveSync, or EAS in 2009 so support for Gmail was showing up on a variety of devices. BlackBerry had everything companies wanted. But people slowly moved to that new iPhone. Or Androids when decent models of phones started shipping with the OS on them. BlackBerry stuck by that keyboard, even though it was clear that people wanted full touchscreens. The BlackBerry Bold came out in 2009. BlackBerry had not just doubled down with the keyboard instead of full touchscreen, but they tripled down on it. They had released the Storm in 2008 and then the Storm in 2009 but they just had a different kind of customer. Albeit one that was slowly starting to retire. This is the hard thing about being in the buying tornado. We're so busy transacting that we can't think ahead to staying in the eye that we don't see how the world is changing outside of it.  As we saw with companies like Amdahl and Control Data, when we only focus on big customers and ignore the mass market we leave room for entrants in our industries who have more mass appeal. Since the rise of the independent software market following the IBM anti-trust cases, app developers have been a bellwether of successful platforms. And the iPhone revenue split was appealing to say the least.  Sales fell off fast. By 2012, the BlackBerry represented less than 6 percent of smartphones sold and by the start of 2013 that number dropped in half, falling to less than 1 percent in 2014. That's when the White House tested replacements for the Blackberry. There was a small bump in sales when they finally released a product that had competitive specs to the iPhone, but it was shortly lived. The Crackberry craze was officially over.  BlackBerry shot into the mainstream and brought the smartphone with them. They made the devices secure and work seamlessly in corporate environments and for those who could pay money to run BES or BIS. They proved the market and then got stuck in the Innovator's Dilemna. They became all about features that big customers wanted and needed. And so they missed the personal part of personal computing. Apple, as they did with the PC and then graphical user interfaces saw a successful technology and made people salivate over it. They saw how Windows had built a better sandbox for developers and built the best app delivery mechanism the world has seen to date. Google followed suit and managed to take a much larger piece of the market with more competitive pricing.  There is so much we didn't discuss, like the short-lived Playbook tablet from BlackBerry. Or the Priv. Because for the most part, they a device management solution today. The founders are long gone, investing in the next wave of technology: Quantum Computing. The new face of BlackBerry is chasing device management, following adjacencies into security and dabbling in IoT for healthcare and finance. Big ticket types of buys that include red teaming to automotive management to XDR. Maybe their future is in the convergence of post-quantum security, or maybe we'll see their $5.5B market cap get tasty enough for one of those billionaires who really, really, really wants their chicklet keyboard back. Who knows but part of the fun of this is it's a living history.

Comme le disait Corneille, "la valeur n'attend point le nombre des années". Une citation qui peut s'appliquer à Alexandr Wang, considéré comme le plus jeune milliardaire du monde. Des débuts fulgurants Depuis son enfance, Alexandr Wang manie les chiffres avec une virtuosité remarquée. Dans son adolescence, le jeune Américain participe à un concours de mathématiques et y gagne un billet gratuit pour Disney World. Un forum en ligne remarque la dextérité du jeune homme en matière de mathématiques appliquées à l'informatique. Aussi l'engage-t-il comme codeur à plein temps. Il n'a que 17 ans. Il entreprend tout de même des études au prestigieux MIT, dans le Massachusetts. Mais il le quitte très vite. En effet, à 19 ans, il décide de consacrer tout son temps à la start-up Scale, spécialisée dans le traitement des données des entreprises. Une clientèle prestigieuse Avec une fortune personnelle estimée à un milliard de dollars, Alexandr Wang est considéré par le magazine Forbes comme le plus jeune milliardaire du monde. Le jeune homme de 25 ans possède en effet 15 % d'une société dont la valeur est estimée à 7,3 milliards de dollars. Le succès a été tel que Scale, qui aurait engrangé 100 millions de dollars de bénéfices en 2021, serait passée de 3 à 600 employés. La société conçoit des programmes informatiques qui analysent, en un temps record, les énormes quantités de données que les entreprises n'ont pas le temps, ni souvent les moyens, d'exploiter. Aussi le jeune milliardaire a-t-il pu séduire une clientèle prestigieuse. En effet, il a signé trois contrats, d'une valeur de 350 millions de dollars, avec l'armée américaine. La société se propose d'analyser pour elle, avec plus de rapidité et de précision, les images fournies par les satellites. Ce qui permettrait aux militaires de mieux évaluer l'avancée des combats en Ukraine et l'efficacité des bombardements russes. Mais l'entreprise d'Alexandr Wang a su également convaincre des groupes très prospères, comme General Motors, Samsung ou la plateforme de location de logements Airbnb. Nombreux sont ceux qui voient dans ce jeune milliardaire un futur Elon Musk. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

What I learned from reading Franklin & Washington: The Founding Partnership by Edward Larson.Listen to every full episode for $10 a month or $99 a year. The key ideas you'll learn pays for the subscription cost thousands of times over.WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE SAYING:“Founders is the only podcast I pay for and it's worth 100x the cost.”“I've now listened to every episode. From this knowledge I've doubled my business to $500k a year. Love your passion and recommend your podcast to everyone.”“Without a doubt, the highest value-to-cost ratio I've taken advantage of in the last year is the Founders podcast premium feed. Tap into eons of knowledge and experiences, condensed into digestible portions. Highly, highly recommend. “Uniquely outstanding. No fluff and all substance. David does an outstanding job summarizing these biographies and hones in on the elements that make his subjects so unique among entrepreneurs. I particularly enjoy that he focuses on both the founder's positive and negative characteristics as a way of highlighting things to mimic and avoid.”“I just paid for my first premium podcast subscription for Founders podcast. Learning from those who came before us is one of the highest value ways to invest time. David does his homework and exponentially improves my efficiency by focusing on the most valuable lessons.”“I haven't found a better return on my time and money than your podcast for inspiration and time-tested wisdom to help me on my journey."I have listened to every episode released and look forward to every episode that comes out. The only criticism I would have is that after each podcast I usually want to buy the book because I am interested, so my poor wallet suffers.”"I can't get enough of your podcast. You add a new layer to the books I've already read and make connections to ones I haven't, but now must read."“I have listened to many podcasts on entrepreneurship (HIBT, Masters of Scale, etc.) and find Founders to be consistently more helpful than any other entrepreneurship podcast. David is a craftsperson, he carefully reads biographies of founders, distills the most important anecdotes and themes from their life, and draws commonalities across lives. David's focus is rightfully not on teaching you a formula to succeed but on constantly pushing you to think different.”“I highly highly recommend this podcast. Holy cow. I've been binge listening to these and you start to see patterns across all these incredible humans.”Listening to your podcast has changed my life and that is not a statement I make often.“After one episode I quickly joined the Misfit feed. Love the insight and thoughts shared along the way. David loves what he does and it shines through on the podcast. Definitely my go-to podcast now.”“It is worth every penny. I cannot put into words how fantastic this podcast is. Just stop reading this and get the full access.”“Personally it's one of my top 3 favorite podcasts. If you're into business and startups and technology, this is for you. David covers good books and I've come to really appreciate his perspective. Can't say enough good things.”“I quickly subscribed and it's honestly been the best money I've spent all year. It has inspired me to read biographies. Highly recommend.”“This is the most inspirational and best business podcast out there. David has inspired me to focus on biographies rather than general business books. I'm addicted.”“Anyone interested in business must find the time to listen to each any every Founders podcast. A high return on investment will be a virtual certainty. Subscribe and start listening as soon as possible.”“David saves you hundreds of hours by summarizing bios of legendary business founders and providing valuable insight on what makes an individual successful. He has introduced me to many founders I would have never known existed.”“The podcasts offer spectacular lessons on life, human nature and business achievement. David's enthusiasm and personal thoughts bring me joy.
