Startup Pregnant Episodes

Visit the Startup Pregnant Website

At Startup Pregnant, we interview pioneering women entrepreneurs, leaders, and new parents as they navigate what it takes to grow families and build companies. We ask deep human questions around what it means to become a parent, grow a business, deal with success, and learn from failure. Motherhood, fatherhood, parenting, startups, and entrepreneurship are similar in so many ways. This show gives us a chance to learn from these profound life-transforming journeys. Startup Pregnant isn’t strictly about startups and pregnancy; it’s about the deep-rooted power that growing businesses and babies taps into, and how we change as a result.
