The Innovate 608 podcast is for professionals on the go. It’s about entrepreneurship — the journey, the community and a place to hear about bold new things happening in Madison and Wisconsin.

Hosted by Nora Roughen-Schmidt and produced by StartingBlock, Madison’s local hub for creative startups, the Innovate 608 podcast will tell the stories of incredible Wisconsin innovators. Listeners will hear from startup CEOs about their successes and failures, plus experts in every facet of creating a successful business, from turning an idea into an effective investor pitch to launching and running a thriving operation.

In the 16th episode, two UW-Madison grads and veterans of the Madison startup scene reflect on what it takes to be successful. Scott Resnick is the chief operating officer of Hardin Design & Development, a nationally recognized web application and product development firm. Forrest Woolworth is COO of PerBlue, a mobile games studio started from a college apartment that now entertains millions of players around the world.
