“One of the biggest challenges that we’re facing is that we have a category defining product and nothing like it has existed before, so we have to do a lot of consumer education.” 

To celebrate the completion of 40 Minute Mentor Series 7, we’ve put together a fascinating roundup episode spotlighting industry disrupting business leaders. 

We hear from category defining businesses, including Dan Garrett from Farewill, Margot & Alexia de Broglie from Your Juno, Nicolas d’Audiffret from Ankorstore and Wing Chan from Sourceful

These Founders share some brilliant mentorship with us, including: 

  • How Farewill came to exist and what mistakes Dan has learned from over the years [2:16
  • The fine line Your Juno have to balance while educating their consumers on what and why they’re building [17:02
  • What it takes to scale Ankorstore, the fastest growing Unicorn in Europe, all while taking on big retail players like Amazon [23:30
  • And how Sourceful are helping businesses make more sustainable choices when it comes to sourcing [32:19
