Traction: How Startups Start | NextView Ventures
About This Show
In this story-driven show from tech VC NextView, tech startup founders, executives, journalists, and investors share how they gained initial traction against the odds. Every startup hears that they should do things that don't scale -- scrappy, atypical, whatever-it-takes things. Traction asks a simple question: What ARE those things?
With a unique sound that avoids the boring, typical talking head format, Traction features some of the most interesting early-stage stories, tactics, and theories from some of the best entrepreneurs today.

This is by far the best talk on traction I have ever listened to. Most discussions are soft and ambiguous. This is matter-of-fact and puts all the pieces together. I started listening to this yesterday, the light bulb lit up, and today I've already gotten in touch with multiple interested business customers.
