Founded & Grounded podcast back for series four

Founded & Grounded – a Bristol-based podcast that has become one of the UK’s top listens for founders and aspiring entrepreneurs is back for its latest series with a raft of new sponsors and a well-known West Country Radio voice as Co-Host.

Ollie Collard co-created Founded & Grounded in 2019 and over the last three series has interviewed businesses including TrueStart Coffee, Balderton Capital, and Oowee. Series four of the show is supported by the cyber security company Nova Blue and the flexible workspace platform Tally Market who are the latest show sponsors, both offering exclusive deals for listeners of Founded & Grounded.

And in the latest series, Ollie is joined by his new co-host Laura Rawlings – a BBC radio presenter and event host. Founded & Grounded already has thought-leading guests like Bristol’s Mark Panay of Simpleweb, Sarah Murrell, Co-Founder of By Sarah London, and former Dragon’s Den star, Piers Linney among the guests in the 16-episode series. Ollie Collard, Creator and Co-host of Founded and Grounded, said: “We are now oversubscribed with guests, which is a far cry from when I started the show. I had to hustle and pull in favours from founders, now we’re getting emails every single day asking to be featured.

“We look for founders with an inspiring origin story, those who’re prepared to talk candidly about the harsh realities of running a business, and start-ups who’re purpose-driven.

“I’m delighted to have two new sponsors on board, both of whom are start-ups themselves and more importantly can provide value to our listeners with their exclusive offers. The sponsorship allows us to raise the profile of the podcast and take it to the next level.”

Laura Rawlings, Co-host of Founded and Grounded commented: “As someone setting up a new business, I’m excited to be joining the Founded & Grounded team – it means I get to learn from Ollie and our guests. You often don’t get taught about business at school – so I’m learning now.”
