PRACTITIONERS NOT GURUS
We only interview real founders with actual experience building a business. Not someone “playing business” with a rented lambo on a maxed out credit card. We talk with people who’ve sacrificed to master skills, built something from scratch, and who’ve actually done what they’re giving advice on. We’re the leader in sharing actionable info, not more fluffy theory.
OR MARKET LEADERS
Often those we interview or feature their companies are ranked in the top 3 brands within their own niche or industry. They’ve built something that’s disruptive, and they know what it takes to create something of true worth and significance. They’ve been out on the front lines and have the battle scars (and stories) to prove it.
BUILDING A LEGACY
While they don’t have to be famous or even well known, but their products, services, or brands should have impacted millions. But most importantly, they must have a burning desire to help other entrepreneurs succeed and want to give back to the community.

WHY STARTUP CA IS DIFFERENT
The Startup CA way
Interviews only leading businesses and industry leaders
Provides in-depth actionable advice
Practitioners only - Startup CA that have actually done it (built a real business)
100% focus on entrepreneurial content
Doesn’t sell ads for clickbait
Interviews anyone they can with little credentials
Provides “listicles” with no substance
Ok with “gurus” - people that haven’t actually built substantial businesses and instead make their money from just selling their knowledge
Shotgun content and scattered audience
Monetizes using clickbait
