About The Podcast

Our Mission

Our mission is to be the leading source for knowledge, ideas, and frameworks for operators and investors looking to grow small companies. Through our podcast, newsletter, and research, we share what the most talented operators and investors are thinking about and doing to build transformative companies.

Our Ambition

Finding high quality ideas on growing small companies is a challenge many operators face. We aim to build a powerful, searchable, and informative database of content and frameworks operators and investors use in their companies, one you can’t get anywhere else.

We will use our brand in the small company universe to partner with the most talented and thoughtful experts to provide the highest quality content on business anywhere on the internet. This content will be shared as widely as possible so operators all over the world can get the ideas and insights they need to grow.

Our Story

Think Like an Owner started as a monthly show hosted by Alex Bridgeman in his rental house in college. It grew after graduating, becoming weekly in August 2020 with Alex turning his full-time focus to its continued growth with backing from our initial sponsors.

Since then we have added a weekly newsletter and have ambitions for much more in the coming years.

We hope to build the best media business on small company operations focused on the endless pursuit of better.
