Welcome back to The Main Thing Podcast! I’m your host Skip Lineberg, coming to you again from Parkwood Studios.

Our special guest Rajesh Setty is an author, founder, serial entrepreneur and super connector. Rajesh is often referred to as the Silicon Valley's secret "spark plug" for startups, scale-ups (and shake-ups).

Being a polymath, Rajesh is constantly in the middle of running experiments across a variety of seemingly unrelated areas of interest,  always with the common goal of how to create a better world through the projects he incubates as one of the founders or participates in some meaningful capacity to help the founders. 

He is passionate about hunting for wisdom, curating, packaging, amplifying and expanding its reach, far and wide. One of the startups Rajesh co-founded, Audvisor, is designed to do exactly that. Through Audvisor he brings over 125 world-class experts together to share actionable knowledge in the form of micro-podcasts delivered via an app. As a result, even busy people can grow wherever they go.

Rajesh joins us today from Sunnyvale, California in the heart of Silicon Valley.

Buckle up! Over the next 9 minutes, you’ll get a whirlwind of wisdom from this dynamic, incredibly generous and wise guest!
