465 Merry New Year!

Akarsh Vinod with Dio Technologies returns.


Do you remember the multi-room speakers that I discussed with Akarsh back on Episode 400? Well, I ordered a set of three speakers from his Indiegogo campaign and they have arrived. Join me and Akarsh as I tell what I like and don't like about the speakers. 

Akars also shares his entrepreneurial experience from starting his Indiegogo campaign through today. The three stages that he remembers most 

1) Product Design

2) Operations

3) Marketing and Sales
