Start-ups: dead or alive
- Maryam Mazraei - Autopsy
- Matt Jonns - Ucreate
We, as Producers, didn’t really set-out to do this…but it just so happens that we’ve got a start-up special podcast for you.
Our guests this week have lived through the highs and lows of being a start-up and base their current businesses around those trials and tribulations.
We hope it’s not the case but the first half of the podcast could scare people away from building a business (both guests are big advocates of starting your own business). Maryam Mazraei has compiled a list of failed start-ups through her company Autopsy, rather than being a scare though – it was actually an extremely educational discussion and is a great pointer of the things to avoid when going into business.
Matt Jonns is also used to working with start-ups, but successful ones! He founded Ucreate - A startup studio for non-tech founders who want to build ambitious tech businesses. They have helped over 20 businesses to build and launch so far – and that number is sure to keep rising.
