Season 2 of the Tickets podcast is underway. With our focus on the intersection of experiences, education and entertainment, what better way to start than with the co-founder of a company that’s connecting all these elements through technology.

What have Harry Potter, Steve Wozniak, Los Angeles County School Board and the Indian Prime Minister got in common?

They’ve all been part of the story of Kano, a London based computer company intertwining technology, education and entertainment.

Today on Tickets I’m joined by Kano’s co-founder Alex Klein.

We talk about the future of collective experiences, overcoming the dark times as an entrepreneur, the key ingredients of a compelling Kickstarter campaign, and how a 6 year old’s question was the catalyst for what has become one of the most exciting new computer companies around.

Alex’s thoughts on using creativity to mobilise and empower people are inspiring — I hope you enjoy this conversation as much I did.

“When it seems the darkest and it seems the hardest that’s oftentimes the moment when, without knowing it, you’re creating that next great bolt out of the blue — that next great success”

“For us it’s about that sense of successive mastery — the fun factor”
