Two Founders, Honest Talk | Bootstrap vs VC Funding

Johan sat with Heiki Riesenkampf of Acapela (https://acape.la/) for the first time to have a real talk about business. They discussed why Welder didn't take off, competing with a big fish like Slack, or the difference between US and European engineers.

Fun fact: This was their very first conversation. It's as raw as it gets.

        where can i see more episodes like this, if there are any? most podcasts are long, with intros, ads, promo, announcements etc, this seems to go to the heart of the matter and the style is no BS, very refreshing

          Thanks for the kind words! It means a lot to me! I will be definitely doing more of these and you will be able to find them on our YT channel or on our spotify podcast (https://open.spotify.com/show/2Igkzyef6O3w654X0Yu0FQ?si=JJaz4vsWSgCdrmjp-YFvgg)

          Johan is definitely planning more of this. We love how "No BS" it is.

    Very first chats have something specific to them. They are raw yet juicy and valuable. To the point. I enjoyed this one so much.
