What if I put a microphone in your face and asked you, “Who is someone you need to thank who has helped you get where you are today?” Well, that is exactly what I did for 6 different entrepreneurs.
For the final episode of season 1 I wanted to revisit this common theme from the entrepreneurs we interviewed this season, the need for support and community. And as the first ever PreBoot on the Streets episode I talked to not just one, but six startups asking questions about this topic. So who are these entrepreneurs?
