Our guest for Episode #63 is Eric Marcoullier, founder of several successful companies including IGN and Gnip, and orchestrator of a big turnaround at Beatport. He now coaches startups and mid-sized companies on product, fundraising and leadership issues.
In this interview, Eric and I discuss:
- why Eric learns more from his failures than his successes
- the interesting creative process behind every post on his blog, Obvious Startup Advice
- startup founders and mental health
- Eric’s idea for completely revolutionizing email – and why it’s probably not going to work
Read Eric’s blog, Obvious Startup Advice, and follow him on Twitter @140bpm.
