And finally, the guests will also be presented with a cross-industry mix of startups and companies that could be very interesting for one or the other venture capitalist. 

Inspiring entrepreneurs and founder personalities

Venture capitalists rightly say that more than half of the success of a business idea depends on the founding team and not just on the idea of ​​how to wrongly assume. Patrick Setzer, Managing Director of the consulting firm digital entry, speaks in the podcast Making-the-Startup with the most interesting startup founders and the most exciting entrepreneurs from the startup and corporate scene. In detail, your start-up experience with start-ups is discussed with founders and entrepreneurs and the greatest successes and hurdles are shared. The Making-the-Startup podcast also looks at the world of startups and innovations from a venture capital perspective, discusses current venture capital financing rounds of startups, and discusses the status of the global investor scene with entrepreneurs and investment managers. How does a young or medium-sized company, for example, master the challenge of getting good staff when large tech-companies outperform you in terms of brand, salary payments, bonuses, stock-options, startup-lifestyle and lifelong learning? You can find the answers in the Making-the-Startup podcast. The digital entry founder invites guests to innovative business ideas from all sectors and industrial areas to Making-the-Startup.

All topics about founding and growing

The podcast Making-the-Startup sheds light on valuable experience from founders across all industries, as well as hurdles in setting up a startup. There is detailed discussion of all the details of the business idea, market and competition research, business planning, first steps in the market, proof-of-concepts, legal forms, founding teams and much more. The goal of making the startup is to develop a good knowledge of the opportunities and risks of starting a business. Decision aids, tools, market analyzes, business plans and much more are to be presented and discussed in order to establish and develop innovations.

Patrick Setzer is moderator of the podcast Making-the-Startup

Making-the-Startup host is the founder and managing director of digital entry GmbH, which advises companies on the planning, development and purchase of startups, and is also partially involved in the restructuring of startups. The founder has been in the startup and digital business for over 20 years, has founded himself several times, restructured and sold internet companies for Dax groups, participated in the global rollercoaster ride of a large startup for five years in a renewable energy company and most recently was globally responsible for mobility services units at BMW Group. This look at startups and corporations inspired him to found the consulting company digital entry in 2018 because there is still a lot of work to be done in the area of ​​innovation and startups and he would like to make a contribution here with the digital consulting firm and the podcast series. The idea for Making-the-Startup came to him from a customer who participated in an Amazon Prime Video series called Making the Cut - but more about that in podcast number 1 from Making-the-Startup.
