“If you don’t start it, you’ll live with regret” with Charlie Pool

 

In this episode, we chat with Charlie Pool, Co-founder of Stowga, a platform for finding warehouse space on demand that’s revolutionising the sector. Stowga is regularly described as a WeWork / AirBnB for warehousing, and has the potential to have just as much impact!

 

Featured on both the BBC and in the Financial Times, the team from London have 650 warehouses in over 10 countries around the world. They are backed by Seedcamp, Speed Invest and CBRE, amongst others.

 

Their customers include BT, KFC, Nike and Unilever, in addition to plenty of other worldwide brands and multinationals.

 

This is a great introduction to the sharing economy and building a marketplace, and we also talk about the passion of Charlie, and that not necessarily being warehouses, but building a brilliant company!

 

Let me know what you think!

 

In this episode we discuss:

 

  • The sharing economy

  • Assessing the size of a market

  • Funding and whether it’s the right route for everyone

  • The potential impact of Brexit

  • Content marketing and becoming and expert in your field

  • Finding your passion, no matter what the business

  • And as always, plenty more...
