This eBook compiles highlights from Startups Hacks podcast interviews hosted by German startup expert and author Bernhard Kalhammer. In addition to being a successful startup founder himself, Bernhard hosts the top-ranking Apple podcast "Startup Hacks" and is the author of the bestselling book, "Startup Hacks".

In each podcast, he talks to startup founders and entrepreneurs about their businesses, unique challenges, and what they did to overcome these challenges and disrupt their industries. This first compilation of stories features four early-stage companies:

• LimbicLife: a chair that allows you to fly through virtual worlds
• Kraftblock: the energy storage of the future
• EWAKE: the fastest jetboards on the market
• Skyseed: the future of reforestation with drones

Each founder explains how their ideas became reality, and how having a strong partner helped them realize success.

What will you learn?

In this eBook, you’ll learn from each founder:

  • How each founder realized a need in a specific industry niche, and the steps they took to bring their idea to market

  • What “hacks” and tips helped them overcome challenges, from lack of investors to supply chain shortage

  • How to access resources to support critical processes, including collaboration with stakeholders, visualizing ideas and developing prototypes
