10 Top Business and Tech Podcasts for Entrepreneurs

In the U.S., there are currently 10 million more weekly podcast listeners than Netflix subscribers. Since this could signal the beginning of a transition from visual to audio media, the same is true for entrepreneurial and tech-related content.

If you are interested in new technologies, VR, NFT, smart solutions, or starting and developing your own tech company, the podcast scene is a great place to learn and stay informed. However, with over 2,000,000 shows available, it can be difficult to determine which resources are most useful for growing your business.

That’s why we have compiled a list of the 10 best business and tech podcasts that will keep you up to date on the latest developments and provide you with the inspiration and knowledge you need to thrive.

Her main focus is to discuss lesser-known success stories of very well-known companies such as Gdocs, Salesforce, and Shopify.

What makes this podcast special is that it highlights the unusual beginnings of now great companies that were once humble startups or encountered challenges in their early days. For entrepreneurs, this podcast is essential to get inspired and change your perspective on business.

Business Casual

In Business Casual, you can expect exciting interviews with business leaders, inventors, and movers and shakers, but in a unique and fast-paced comedic format. Nora Ali, a journalist, and Scott Rogowsky, a comedian, guarantee that entertaining and intelligent information will be delivered twice a week. Here is your chance to hear about the rapid changes in real estate, the changes in blood testing technology and industry, or even the impact of TikTok on the economy.

Graham, who has also been an acclaimed creator and live radio talk show host since 1998, meets with forward-thinking pioneers and discusses life-changing technologies and topics like privacy, drones, social media noise, and wine technology live each week.

What struck us is the high merit of the informative speakers who address topics that deal with new technologies and their impact on business and everyday life. A great way to stay informed, motivated, and explore ideas you thought you already knew. A must for entrepreneurs and people with an interest in business and science.

You should give it a try if you are keen on current technologies presented in an easily digestible format. Anish and his guests are authentic, well-informed, and entertaining. What we like even more about “TechTrends” is the time they take to explore broader, non-customer facing trends in enterprise technology to ensure you take something away from each episode.

How We Innovate Podcast

Finally, we saved a freshly released business and tech podcast from Applandeo that debuted on 8 December 2021. The guests, interviewed by business development manager Bryan Wysocki and a seasoned marketer Wioletta Dec, talk about their journey to innovative entrepreneurship and its ups and downs. You are sure to learn how they use new technologies for business success, as well as get some personal advice.

It may be new, but it’s definitely worth exploring for tech-savvy entrepreneurs. The range of guests is broad and interesting, as it includes successful individuals with backgrounds in big companies like Amazon, game development, or the cryptocurrency industry — and not just from a purely technical perspective.

Takeaway

As you know, there is a wide range of business and tech podcasts for entrepreneurs to choose from. On the other hand, the ones we have selected above transcend beyond basic information and consider the business, technical, and personal contexts.
