This show is not telling what to think as much as it is telling you how to think. Jason is excellant at taking you inside the heads of investors and founders to help everyone understand the startup landscape -- he is so very good at teaching you how to not be stupid and develop your insights in how to move forward.

Straight-Forward and powerful!
