Vodafone Business launches ‘Learning Curve’, a brand-new podcast series aimed at inspiring entrepreneurs

Vodafone Business has teamed up with entrepreneur, founder and CEO Michelle Kennedy to launch Learning Curve, a new podcast series aimed at founders, business leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs.

In her role as podcast host, Michelle Kennedy will interview a variety of business leaders on the areas that can shape business success.

Michelle brings a wealth of business knowledge and experience having left her previous role in the online dating industry to start her own tech company, Peanut – the leading online community for women to connect and find support throughout fertility, pregnancy, motherhood, and menopause.

With recent accolades including Fast Company’s Most Innovative 2023; TIME100’s Most Influential 2022; and Apple’s Trend of the Year 2021, Peanut has become a coveted destination for women and has raised more than $23m (£18.5m) in capital.

In Episode 1 Learning Curve, Michelle catches up with Elfried Samba, co-founder of Butterfly 3ffect and former Head of Social at Gymshark, to discuss brand marketing and the philosophies entrepreneurs can embrace to help grow their own business online.

Learning Curve launches on Wednesday 7 June with new episodes going live every Wednesday throughout the month. In addition to brand marketing, the series will cover investment planning; protecting your business; and tips for developing a strong workplace culture.
