In this episode of Being Human, I speak with Richard Stobart, an old friend and the CEO of successful start-up char.gy, a business devoted to transforming lampposts across Britain to start charging our electric cars.

If you want to learn more about building a start-up culture within your business, this is the episode for you. Richard shares candidly about how he initially failed to create good start-up ideas within his existing consulting firm. He then tells us what worked in creating his fast growing char.gy.

We talk:
– Business Model Canvases
– How ‘Hack Days’ can fail
– The in-house incubator that worked
– Conditions for building start-ups
– Getting investors

To your humanity,
Richard
