We interview EU Whalers Michaela Luecke and Luciana Padua about their experience expanding Whole Whale's digital agency services to Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Spain. After over a year of work and a few clients, Whole Whale has decided that the experiment just didn't work.
There are many hard-earned lessons that we discuss starting companies in Germany and the different financial, legal, and social barriers that exist. This podcast is a must-listen for anyone looking to expand services to these regions.
Too often we only hear stories from the people that take risks and win - feeding the survivor bias in entrepreneurship that it is easy to succeed. We need people more like Luciana and Michaela, people willing to take a risk to start something new with a social purpose in their countries.
Special thanks to them both for their efforts in pushing this initiative and taking a risk.
