Not sure how to start doing what you want to do? John's formula worked for him.
We never seem to have any lazy people on the show, do we? This week, it’s John Quayle, one of two partners behind the StartNOW Pittsburgh newsletter, the principal consultant behind Quayle Creative, and a very busy member of the Active X-It fund. He’s a good friend of our host Scot MacTaggart, and kindly accepted our request to come into the studio to help to decode what is happening in Western PA’s startup scene. The insights he offers are useful anywhere though, laying out some very useful insights for everyone who isn’t in San Francisco, Boston, or some other fully matured startup hotbed.
A truly informative and unpredictable episode. Watch. This. Company.
This week on The Pitchwerks Podcast we’ve got three young men who have made it their business to help save the world - Tanner Cook, Grant Halleran and Aakash Pathak from CleanRobotics. Together with host Scot MacTaggart, the team analyzes buyer motivations, end user education, and a two-tiered demonstration strategy for their product, Trashbot. Trashbot is a combination recycling bin / trash can with a bit of AI / machine learning built in. It solves the hidden problem of recycling - unexpected complexity - by analyzing what you dispose of, and sending it to the landfill or the recycling plant based on a number of factors, including your local regulations.
Flexable: One part business, one part mission. #ChildcareEverywhere
AMAZINGLY sharp conversationalist Priya Amin comes into the studio this week, prepping for an investor pitch competition and talking about Flexable, the startup that she and cofounder Jessica Strong have grown into a common presence at major employers and events in Pittsburgh. This episode was recorded just before Priya left for the New England Venture Fair, so she and Scot work on her NEVF investor pitch a little bit, while also making time to discuss cofounder relationships and expansion strategy.
