The Unintentional Entrepreneur with ElliptiGO Founder Bryan Pate

What I Wish I Knew with Mike Irwin & Simon Daw

Bryan Pate was a runner who couldn't run anymore. Injuries forced him onto elliptical trainers but he grew weary of gym life. When he couldn't find an elliptical to ride outside, he and a partner invented one. His company, ElliptiGO, created a new category of elliptical and stand up bikes. Prior to founding ElliptiGO, he was a consultant at McKinsey, a military intelligence officer in the US Marine Corps, and a law clerk in the US District Court. In this episode of What I Wish I Knew with Mike Irwin & Simon Daw, Bryan talks about what drove him from Stanford University to serve as an intelligence officer in the US Marine Corps and to Columbia Law School. Coming from a family of lawyers, he broke tradition to start ElliptiGO. What I Wish I Knew with Mike Irwin & Simon Daw... Life and career rarely go to plan. Breakthroughs happen on the ragged edge when things aren't quite going as expected. What I Wish I Knew podcast hosts Mike Irwin and Simon Daw explore lessons learned by leading athletes, creators, entrepreneurs, leaders, and difference makers. They all have three things in common: none are perfect, all are humble, and they've learned a few things along the way. In What I Wish I Knew, they share their lessons with you.
