Episode 1: Honesty and Communication

Welcome to the first episode of The Founder’s Mindset, the podcast where we find out how to better understand the way our minds work in the early days of founding a company. Throughout this series, Alice Bentinck and Dr Gena Gorlin will be exploring common mental challenges that founders face. Each week, Gena will be talking to a different guest at various stages of their start-up journey. Then Alice and Gena will be debriefing on the session, taking away valuable learnings which you can apply to your own founder experience.

When Gena first met Fabien Koutchekian, he was struggling to communicate the magnitude of his business to investors. Throughout his EF journey, he learned the value of openness and honesty, which is what we explore in this week’s episode.
