Episode notes

Martin Hosking, Redbubble 

Martin Hosking recognizes all startups need two things: “the gap in the market and the market in the gap.” 

This week on 37 Degrees Latitude, Martin Hosking, CEO and co-founder of Redbubble, talks about a career that spans international diplomacy, Web 1.0 startups, the dot-com bubble, an Australian unicorn, and now, an Australian based print-on-demand marketplace supporting artists around the world.  

U.S. Consul General Mike Kleine hosts Martin to reflect on the lessons learned in his career that include the value of focus, the realities of building a business with a global mindset, and navigating delayed-onset culture shock – with a little help from the San Francisco Giants.
