Founder Real Talk Episode #19 With Tim Westergren, Founder of Pandora

In Founder Real Talk episode #19, I host Tim Westergren, the founder and one-time CEO of Pandora, the pioneer in streaming music. Having known Tim since the early days of Pandora (2005 era!) and having been lucky enough to invest in Pandora in ’10 for GGV, I was very excited to have Tim bring the Pandora story to life.
