Justin Borgman, Co-founder of Starburst - Ignoring Tradition and Going Bootstrap

Inside the episode

Released September 1, 2020

"We're not building a unicorn. We're building a workhorse." - Justin Borgman

As a 2-time founder, Justin saw entrepreneurship as a way to have an impact on the world. He & his employees wanted to do something to help fight against COVID-19, so they made their whole enterprise solution free to COVID-19 researchers. That’s true impact. That’s wanting your work to do good in the world.

What we talked about:

• His impetus for entrepreneurship arrived at age 12
• The differences between his 1st and 2nd companies
• Company culture & values (not “the Silicon Valley mentality”)
• How he views his competitors
