Welcome to the Inc. Founders Project podcast–where we tell tales about the guts, inspiration, and drive of the people and companies building the future. Each week, we dig into a founder’s professional playbook–and uncover what makes them tick. On this week’s episode:
To build one successful startup is no easy feat, but to do it twice is even more impressive. Eren Bali launched his first project, Udemy, to make education more accessible, and scaled the company to reach more than 10 million students worldwide. In 2016, Bali started Carbon Health to reimagine the health care experience from the ground up. He’s raised over $500 million in venture funding and plans to open 1,500 clinics across the country over the next few years. Eren shares why he believes the future involves “omnichannel health care,” how Covid went from a business threat to a major accelerant, and why he doubled down on communication skills in his second time around as a founder.
