The Story

Every entrepreneur goes through ups and downs, but if you want to succeed in business then you need to learn from your mistakes. During Jeremy Liddle’s time as CEO of RioLife, he saw the company distribute its products to over 2,000 stores across Australia and be named Australia’s Fastest Growing Business by My Business Magazine. But that’s only half the story.

For the inaugural episode of The Lead Investor podcast, Jeremy shares his journey, explaining how the lessons he learned allowed him to help millions of businesses worldwide in his position as President of the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance, and then go on to co-found CapitalPitch with Emlyn Scott.
