Everybody’s got a great idea. Only a few have the guts to turn that idea into a business. Each of those courageous entrepreneurs has a fascinating story to tell, including the inspiration for their idea, the struggle to get it off the ground, and the challenges they faced while making it happen.  

“Built From Scratch”, a new podcast developed by the students in the Broadcasting program at Fanshawe College, brings you those personal stories through in-depth conversations with the founders themselves.

“Podcasts are becoming increasingly integrated into content delivery strategies for broadcasting corporations,” said Christopher Rowe, Sales and Marketing Advisor for the School of Contemporary Media. “To reflect that shift, we’ve been looking for an opportunity to include podcast development in our Broadcasting – Radio program.  In the pursuit of that goal, we’ve developed a partnership with LEAP Junction here at Fanshawe, and Western’s Propel Entrepreneurship.”

“Built From Scratch” is now available on SpotifyiTunes and Google Play. If you like what you hear, be sure to subscribe!
