RALEIGH — Earfluence has partnered with venture capitalist David Gardner to convert his book, “The Startup Hats: Master the Many Roles of the Entrepreneur” into a podcast series and audiobook.

It’s one of several business-themed shows the Raleigh-based podcast and digital marketing firm has released in recent months. Others include Walk West Donald Thompson’s “Hustle Unlimited” and “Backstage at DPAC.”

Startup Hats

Gardner’s book tackles the trials of being a startup founder, and the 11 different “hats” you need to wear to get your business off the ground.

To promote the podcast’s launch, Gardner will be at Durham’s American Underground for a “Coffee with David Gardner” event on March 10. He’ll discuss  why he wrote the book, what it’s meant to entrepreneurs he’s invested in and mentored, and why he’s turning it into an audiobook and podcast.

“If you’re an entrepreneur (or want to be one day), you won’t want to miss this free event,”  Earfluence’s CEO Jason Gillikin.

The audiobook and podcast are sponsored by Forrest Firm.
