The Adventure Start-up Series - episode 2

We catch up on the progress of Run Weekends - a new business founded by record-setting runner, Nick Butter

In episode 1 of ‘The Adventure Start-Up Series’ we heard about the launch of new venture Run Weekends from its founder, record-breaking marathon runner Nick Butter.

In episode 2, we’re a few months into operation and Nick’s still feeling excited and anxious but also has a growing sense of confidence about how it’s going.

There’s lots still to learn but he’s getting some great feedback, cashflow is going OK and he’s thinking about how he can bring more people on board to help.

If you’re thinking of starting an adventure business (or any kind of business really!), or you’re on your own start-up journey, then take a listen. There’s lots to learn (including on funding and financials, as well as marketing and operations) and Nick’s enthusiasm is inspiring!
