“I value this podcast greatly. Time 4 Growth Markets consistently brings to light the unique stories of leaders who develop creative business models in challenging markets. I’ve been inspired by the guests and hope to start my own business in a growth market one day. I plan to continue listening to stay updated on challenges these entrepreneurs face in underserved markets, how they manage risk, what works and what does not. The host takes a friendly conversational approach and continues to ask thoughtful questions. This is the place to go if you want to learn about how business works in growth markets.”
