Leaders that are able to build and create a culture of openness and collaboration are able to encourage their team to better self-develop, communicate, and share what they are learning so they can capitalize on the actions they are or could be doing better, and promoting and pushing one another to do the same. But where do we begin in order to create and maintain this idea that we call product culture?
On today’s episode, we chat with Marcus Cobb, a technologist, product designer, public speaker, and successful entrepreneur. Marcus is a highly sought-after investor, mentor, and strategist for numerous organizations.

Marcus Cobb quotes from this episode of Igniting Startups:
“I think one definition I heard for integrity that always stuck with me is that integrity is keeping your word to your own heart.” — @jammberceo @jammbermusic on @PowderkegCo
“I mean, the one consistent currency of destiny is diligence, which is painstaking effort. No one can take that from you. And when you start seeing the reward of that, you don’t want anyone to.” — @jammberceo @jammbermusic on @PowderkegCo
“How do you play your cards, so to speak? I think we have to make that decision ourselves especially as entrepreneurs, because it’s impossible. I’m going to go on a limb here and say I think it’s impossible to have a startup and play by all the rules.” — @jammberceo @jammbermusic on @PowderkegCo
“I don’t think that any one company can bring about disruption. I think we write it.” — @jammberceo @jammbermusic on @PowderkegCo
