A Must Listen for Entrepreneurial Changemakers!

I just listened to the most recent episode of Grow Ensemble “5 MUST Read Books for the Social Entrepreneurial Changemaker” and I’m totally hooked! This is obviously a podcast that looks at change making from both the head and the heart. I subscribed to the podcast and can’t wait to listen make my way through past episodes and future episodes.

Lalaloved it

Great insight, great dialogue, great podcast!

Awesome podcast.

Great interviews with interesting guests providing practical tips. Excited to hear more!

Awesome Podcast!

Kind of like “How I Built This” but for entrepreneurs that are more focused in ways to give back! I love it. Definitely worth a listen!

A promising drop in the wellspring of audio content

I recently listened to Grow Ensemble’s first podcast. This isn’t just a clone of “How I Built It”. Cory Ames does a great job of diving into the tactical (e.g. asking what tools his brother uses to run Harkla), while shifting back to the higher level (e.g. the reasoning behind why Harkla donates a share of their revenue). And, though, I may choose to build a business differently, I found myself interested in how Harkla did it, and their motivations. I’ll continue to listen to this, and it should improve further as Cory becomes more comfortable interviewing his guests and drawing insights from them.

Good insight!

It’s great to hear high quality conversations about mission-driven businesses. I’m excited to see where this podcast goes!

A real take on social enterprises -- absolutely refreshing

A lot of current podcasts on entrepreneurship focus on the more "sexy" aspects of how someone built a 100M+ business. After listening to Cory's Grow Ensemble, it's clear he wants to explore the 1000s of other entrepreneurs that are making a difference in this world. And honestly that's refreshing. Not everything about entrepreneurship is glamourous, there's a lot of gritty stuff that happens in the day-to-day. And it's nice to have a podcast like Grow Ensemble to learn more about the companies that are getting started with a mission to improve the world in mind!

Interesting & informative podcast!

Really interesting podcast. An intriguing conversation between Cory and Casey. Truly inspiring to hear how this business has taken off and continues to evolve. The concept of a new company giving back is admirable to say the least. I have no doubt that this business attitude combined with the solid business plan will be rewarded as this company moves forward.

So encouraging!

Hearing from business owners who are working to promote social change is so refreshing and encouraging. They provide valuable knowledge on how one can be successful and still find a way to give back to the community. This podcast is for all types of listeners. It will both inspire and teach you. I am excited for more episodes and to learn about more socially conscious businesses!

Cory is a great interviewer

One thing that makes Cory's podcast so great is that he chooses the right questions to ask. Most business podcasts all asks the same things but Cory has unique and interesting questions while prioritizing social impact - which is very needed in today's world :)
