Why Sponsor Our Podcasts
- An unrivaled audience of investors and entrepreneurs. There aren’t many ways to have a trusted voice reach out to hundreds of thousands of investment professionals and entrepreneurs.
- Exclusive - we are currently only allowing 2 sponsors on the podcast per episode (and only 1 featured sponsor) meaning you won’t get drowned out in 8 minutes of ads. Further, we are very strict about the companies we will work with so you won’t risk you brand equity being diluted.
- Trust - we have built a long-term, trusting relationship with our audience and we will only mention products we believe in.
- Audience Value - Our audience values the sponsors we agree to work with, so we are exclusive about who we partner with.
