Unless you've been hiding in a cave for the past few years, the world has gone Startup crazy. In fact, successful entrepreneurs are idealised like rockstars. To the point where everyone thinks they should become an entrepreneur. But what does it actually take to start a business? And is everyone capable of becoming an entrepreneur?
Today's guest is Jonny Miller, co-founder of Maptia and a Techstars graduate (the odds of getting accepted on this startup accelerator programme are harder than the odds of getting into Harvard and Yale combined!) who also happens to lead the Startup Tribe at Escape the City in London.
So if you're startup curious, run your own business or are thinking of joining a startup, Jonny is a ridiculous encyclopaedia of wealth of information when it comes down to what it really takes to start your own business.
In our intimate conversation, Jonny shares his journey of how a small group of his friends and him accidentally became entrepreneurs after daring to apply for a grant in Chile.
As always, this is a story worth sharing!
