What makes a great founder?

In the episode, we get to hear Magnus discuss how he and his team aim to support entrepreneurs whom dream of creating businesses that strive to have a positive impact on the world, all through the Antler program and its global network.

As Alex Chisnell put it: “I genuinely think that this business, with Magnus driving it alongside his incredibly talented team, has the potential to change the world in the same way that Airbnb, Uber or even Apple has done.”

We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
