Hi everyone and welcome to the Why 2 podcast where I interview interesting and noteworthy people to learn about their journeys and specifically look to understand their beliefs, values, mindset, and resources they used to get started and succeed on their journey
I'm your host Dustin Elliott and today’s guest is Rohit Bhargava.
Rohit requires little introduction as he currently runs one of the hottest podcasts, Startup Playbook Podcast, which has reached number three on iTunes. He has interviewed some very well known people across technology, entrepreneurship, and Venture Capital.
Rohit is also well known for running StageLabel, established in 2013, which was a crowdfunding platform that provided market validation and funding to various fashion designers. For the next two years StageLabel helped launch over 150 fashion brands globally and won numerous prizes and awards including being named one of the "Top 10 Startups To Watch in 2014" by Startup Daily and finishing runner up at the Startup Weekend Melbourne event in 2013.
As you will hear in the podcast, Rohit has been real inspiration to me. At the young age of 29 he has already been on such an incredible journey and already achieved so much in his career. Within a few years he went from no formal business education to starting one of the hottest startups, which ultimately ended after a rollercoaster experience, to what he is pivoted into now.
As we dive through the highs and lows of his career, you will hear Rohit’s journey of self discovery and a distillation of the qualities that make him so extraordinary today. The themes of being true to yourself, how to deliver value and providing some great suggestions about starting your own venture are all discussed.
