Startup Therapy Podcast

The No BS version of startup life you've been looking for

We dive deep into the problems startup Founders face every day to unpack what's really at stake and how to actually solve them.

Episodes


Wil and Elliot talk about how Founders struggle to negotiate their compensation, what should happen in cap table discussions, and why Founders should rethink how they get paid.



Wil and Elliot talk about spending a decade to build a business from scratch, how past success can’t dictate the next success, and why nothing matters until the end goal is reached.



Wil and Ryan discuss why founders should separate themselves from their Startups, the lack of predecessors to guide young founders, what else to focus on besides building the business, and maintaining individuality.



How do we listen to what investors are actually saying? Wil and Elliot discuss the direct and indirect ways investors say ‘No’, the passive-aggressive questions, when founders become annoying, and how investors should behave.



Wil Schroter and guest host, Sam Parr (CEO of The Hustle), look back at the early stages of their Startups, how to gauge financial security, why an early start is an accelerant, tough conversations with investors, and incredible stories of successful Startup businesses.
