On episode 30 of the Founders’ Fable, we're talking with Steven Plappert. They're a 2-time Founder and 2-time Techstars Alum. Steven also just completed a fundraising round of $4.5 million!

Topics we discuss include growing up in an entrepreneurial family, trial by fire and experiential learning, co-founder dynamics, being careful with investor choice, better data access meaning better decisions, the mental toll of failure, decision fatigue, being a founder isn't for everyone, the difficulty of getting product development just right, and the power is in the people.


Savannah is our one-woman marketing department. She posts, writes, and creates all things Slingshot. While she may not be making software for you, she does have a minor in Computer Information Systems. We’d call her the opposite of a procrastinator: she can’t rest until all her work is done. She loves playing her switch and meal-prepping.
