As a special feature, we are now including video visits by our very own Will Reiland called "Will on Campus".
Listen to our podcast each week to hear more of Will's hilarious conversations with students regarding the college startup movement.
We hope you enjoy the shows as much as we do producing them!
Many successful businesses, especially those in recent years, originated as small startups on college campuses. In fact, that’s how this podcast began, and we are following that same journey. Startup Parachute was our idea, applying our energy and our enthusiasm to help support students who are actively developing a new venture. Startup Parachute hopes to be a voice for this movement.
Startup Parachute is a weekly college podcast that highlights the entrepreneurial adventure that is happening on virtually every campus in the US and beyond. Our mission is to inform, inspire and celebrate what it takes to become the next business rockstar. In that process, we capture part of the climb to success through interviews, discussions, and engaging stories from those student-led startups and business icons from each campus. In addition, each week we will feature top venture capitalists who help fuel those revolutionary ideas and entrepreneurial spirit.
Startup Parachute is always on the move, visiting schools, meeting and interviewing both student-led startups and business icons who have been inspired to create new technology, products and services that are changing the world. Season One premiered September 2015 and we will be dropping in at the following campuses this season (among others). Tune in to all major podcast channels to catch the show, and see if your school is featured!
THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT at the university level is willing and eager: nearly 90 percent of young people believe that entrepreneurship education is important, according to the Young Entrepreneur Council.
