It's incredible what you can do with an iPhone 5 and a little entrepreneurial spirit.
Seriously, I knew the idea to air casual conversations with serial entrepreneurs, founders and startup leaders was a good one, but I never expected it to take off like it has. For the record, it wasn't my idea. TheBeach Meets TheStreet's co-producer Manoj Rao of Media 11:11 came up with it. I had the good sense to sell TheStreet Editor-in-Chief Bill Inman, on the idea.
Anyway, who would have thought we would have kicked off the series with Pandora (P) co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer Tim Westergren? Incredible, but merely a harbinger of things to come as we split time between established entrepreneurs and relatively young startup founders from Southern California's Silicon Beach and beyond.Cyrus Farudi of Capsule and 22-year old Jonathan Calmus of Cuttle followed Westergren in weeks two and three. You can see each of the conversations at TheBeach Meets TheStreet's YouTube playlist. Now, dig this slate of forthcoming guests to hit TheStreet every Tuesday morning going forward:
