Sean Sheppard: Hacking Venture Capital and Mentoring for Growth with GrowthX

June 22, 2020

In this podcast, we have a chat with Sean Sheppard, co-founder of GrowthX and GrowthX Academy and serial entrepreneur VC, about his experiences with venture capital, and the mindsets that lead to success for a company, and the ones that ensure a company will never truly take off.

We discuss topics such as the problems many start-ups face in the seed stage when they have the least capital but need the most help, the importance of consistency with the quality of your products and thus your brand expectations, and the necessity of a focus on human to human interaction and experience that will allow you to find a profitable business model.

With any business venture, it’s essential to have an open mindset regarding growth and learning as opposed to a fixed mindset. Feedback is a gift and if you can look for patterns across your feedback and make the appropriate adjustments in response, what you learn will lead to revenue.
