Startup Secrets Podcast #056: James McAulay

Marketplace Mechanics

Episode 3: Andrew Needham, HeadBox

Really pleased to announce that Episode 3 of the Marketplace Mechanics podcast is OUT NOW!

In this episode, I was privileged to have Andrew Needham from HeadBox joining me in the studio.  

HeadBox is a marketplace for booking inspiring meeting and events space all over the UK (and as of this month, Ireland!), and Andrew was generous enough to chat in-depth about the lessons learned during the early days of launching the platform.
