Highlighting the groundbreaking innovations and entrepreneurs of Greater Boston
Entrepreneurs have few platforms from which to make their experiences known.
In addition, many would-be entrepreneurs simply don't know how to turn their passion into a business.
By interviewing startup founders and CEOs about their experiences in the startup world, we hope to help listeners understand what it really means to start a company. We want to reveal the real-life ups and downs of working at a startup. We want to show that no matter where you went to school, where you're from, or what your background is, as long as you have the passion and ambition to create something new or change the world for the better... you absolutely can.
The arsenic water crisis affects over 200 million people around the globe. In fact, the World Health Organization calls it the largest mass poisoning in human history. Minhaj and his team at Drinkwell are out to address this issue, at scale, and save millions of lives. In the process, Minhaj has learned a lot about how, when the rubber meets the road, your go-to-market strategies need to adapt and grow, sometimes in ways you could have never imagined. Doing this requires a delicate balance of flexibility and a ruthlessness. Please join us as we sit down with Minhaj to learn more.

Co-Host + Audio Editor :: Joe is passionate about passion. He gets jazzed being around the dreamers, go-getters, and self-starters of the world. He launched his first startup while pursuing a masters in materials science and engineering at Cornell, and fell head-over-heels for the cleantech startup sector and the amazing people in it. This podcast is a love-letter to cleantech as well as an invitation to aspiring entrepreneurs! Joe loves reading philosophy, crocheting, playing rugby, hiking, and playing lengthy, complicated board games. If he could have a superpower it would be to have infinite energy, so he could just keep doing fun things all day (like play board games that take 3 hours).
Co-Host + Visual Designer :: A Massachusetts native, Chloe returned to her hometown to join the thriving cleantech community. Her first job after finishing her masters at Duke was as a mechanical engineer for Open Water Power, which at the time was a Greentown Labs startup in Somerville and has since been acquired in a successful exit. Today Chloe works as an energy storage research associate at Lux Research and now interviews startup CEOs as part of her day job. With this podcast, Chloe wants to spotlight the diversity of people, ideas, and cultures in the cleantech startup community of Greater Boston.
