Marketplace Mechanics is now LIVE!

I’m delighted to release Episode 1 of the show, which features my good friend Daniel van Binsbergen (@DvanBins).

Dan is the Co-Founder & CEO, of Lexoo, and we’ve been chatting with each other about our respective marketplaces through 2017. I learn something new every time we talk, and I’m so happy to be sharing some of Dan’s insights with you today.

I’m treating Marketplace Mechanics very much like a startup. Episode 1 is a Minimum Viable product, and I am hungry for your feedback.

  • Am I asking good questions?
  • Is the sound quality good?
  • Is the episode too long, or too short?

You can find me on twitter @thejamesmcaulay and the show is @MarketplacePod, or reach out on email [email protected]

Please do share the podcast with anyone who might be interested, and you can subscribe through iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud.

Marketplace Mechanics

I’m starting a podcast about marketplaces

I’m really excited to announce that I’m about to begin recording my own podcast!

Since founding Encore three years ago, I’ve become fascinated, obsessed and enthralled by two-sided marketplace businesses.

Marrying the needs of supply and demand through a platform that provides more value than a direct transaction is a complex problem that every marketplace founder needs to solve quickly in order to scale.

You’re essentially building two startups at once, with two sets of users: your customers, and your suppliers.
