Alexa European Marketing Flash Briefing - S02 E07 - Barcelona Virtual - Interview with Andrew Funk
Andrew Funk founded Homeless Entrepreneur in Spain in 2016

Most of us don't equate homelessness with Professionals, let alone Entrepreneurs. Shiny, Silicon-Valley icons are held before us as role models. And yes, RISK is celebrated. Yet, what happens when it all falls apart?

The Venture Capital funds burn up, the Dream implodes. Life crises that often destroy entire families, leaving many on the streets in their wake.

As Andrew Funk, founder of Homeless Entrepreneur, notes in this compelling interview, a minority of "Rough Sleepers" we see on the streets may be there due to addictions or mental illness. Many more — an unseen majority— want to work and yearn to reestablish their lives: yet are caught up in a vicious circle.

This brings us to Andrew: we guarantee that his chat with Paul and Anna will not leave you indifferent. 

They are also joined by Carrie of our Voice Services team, who has a special place in her heart for this subject. And, in this 20th Episode of our podcast, we also welcome thousands of new listeners coming from the major podcast platforms.

THE BASICS · An Innovative Solution


"In a real sense all life is inter-related. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be."

Martin Luther King, Letter from the Birmingham Jail, 1963
