The Makeshift CMO: Marketing Podcast For Early Stage Founders & Teams

The Makeshift CMO: Marketing Podcast For Early Stage Founders & Teams

This podcast is the founder's cheat code to understand marketing beyond unexplainable jargon. We talk about marketing as a strategic function and how it makes a true impact on an early-stage startup.

We don't just cover pure marketing, we also cover how marketing works with other startup functions such as sales, operations, product and more. If you're a founder or the leader of a small marketing team at a startup, this is the podcast you have been waiting for.

No fluff. Just value.
