This week, Nick is taking a deep dive into the world of venture capital with special guest, Brad Feld, one of the most prolific investors in the world, having marked himself out as an early stage investor since 1987 in such diverse businesses as Fitbit and Guitar Hero!
There are few people in the world as experienced in investing as Brad, and on this special episode of the show, he talks you through the ways in which you can raise the venture capital you need to energise your scale-up plans.
‘I learned the difference between zero times your money and a hundred times your money’
‘If you don’t care about the product, as an investor you can’t stay in there and do the work’
’The way you learn how to fly is to throw yourself at the ground and miss’
‘What happens at every step along the way feeds into what happens next'

ABOUT THE HOST
My name is Nick Bradley. I’m an entrepreneur, author, speaker and investor. My background is in growing and scaling VC and Private Equity backed businesses.
Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life. As well as investing in growth businesses and backing turnarounds - with the ultimate aim of creating value from significant capital events.
I’m passionate about personal and professional development - showing up and being the best version of myself ... every day.
My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations - so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms - utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
