#22 Julie Penner, Techstars: Building Teams With the Process+Leader Loop and Vulnerability-Based Trust

In this episode of Creating a Humanist Blockchain Future (Patreon, Soundcloud, Youtube, iTunes), I interview Julie Penner, a Director of Techstars Boulder who read 100 books this year. We chat about the loop between lean processes + leadership, the power of vulnerability-based trust, and “building your company from the inside out”. As always, let me know if you have any feedback!
