Entrepreneurs and business leaders need to step up their competitive edge by tapping into the same information sources that investors and venture capitalists use.
In the words of Kara Nortman, a venture capitalist at Upfront Ventures, “Venture capitalists are great aggregators of information (and opinions) on specific industries, geographies and market sentiment. They’re paid to stay ahead of trends and look at pitfalls and success factors of company building.”
It’s a fast moving world. Entrepreneurs and business leaders need to step up their competitive edge by tapping into the same information sources that investors and venture capitalists use.
Podcasts are one of them and the main reason why you should pay attention to the recommendations of top investment and venture capital experts in this article.
Here are 3 podcasts that, if you pay proper attention, will definitely give you an edge over your peers:

StartUp and Reply All: “StartUp’s various seasons are fascinating, behind-the-scenes stories about the realities of startup life. Reply All is a really interesting look into the sometimes obscure world of internet phenomenons, memes, and trends.” — Alicia Syrett, Pantegrion Capital. (Source: Inc)
TED Radio Hour: “This podcast hits a wide array of interdisciplinary topics that on the surface have nothing to do with my job, and yet I almost always pull out some new nugget of information that is useful to my day-to-day work and helps me view a company, team or market through a unique lens.” — Kara Nortman, Upfront Ventures.
