Paul’s old mate Gary V - “I’m scared for all the companies these days that are raising money … Many startups today aren’t actual businesses, they’re “financial arbitrage machines” built with the goal of raising the next round of financing.
And what will happen when all that money dries up (like it eventually will)?
We need to collectively begin celebrating that are actually making money over companies that are just "fundraising ' - really hope we start having this conversation more in the tech community.”

Celebrating 100 shows David and Paul discuss why they do this, Where to from here and what you can do to better our industry.
They also go off on 100 tangents.
100th show in 2 years
Why we still do what we do?
Paul - Support the industry, add a realistic/practical voice for the industry in a sea of marketing
Our challenges over the 2 years.
Time - PM 2 days per week, plus travel to conferences, plus arranging interviews
Where to now
Connect more with listeners. Want to include the voice of the people
Want to hear more about the UK and the US
We so proud of what people have done based on the show
Now it’s time to stop talking and start leading
We want you to act on what we say
We want you to lead
What’s changed in two years? 2 years ago was awareness. I think that at least IPA and CA have listened and i think we need to start engaging and working with the industry.
