#97: How to Network and Build Relationships Like a Superconnector with Scott Gerber
This is a podcast episode titled, #97: How to Network and Build Relationships Like a Superconnector with Scott Gerber. The summary for this episode is: Hey there Powderkeg fans! Nick here from the Powderkeg team. This is episode 97 of Powderkeg: Igniting Startups, the show for entrepreneurs, leaders, and innovators building remarkable tech companies in areas outside of Silicon Valley. Today we’re revisiting an old episode where Matt spoke with Scott Gerber. He’s the co-founder of the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) and The Community Company, and he’s spent nearly a decade helping entrepreneurs and global brands alike intelligently grow their networks. Scott has based his entire career on business relationships and helping other people build them. The interview is from March 2018, and we’re taking this episode out of the archives because it’s one of our most popular interviews from last year. In this interview, Scott shares some of the strategies from his 2018 book called “Superconnector” and explains why taking the long view on relationship-building and being a connector instead of a networker will ultimately lead to greater business - and personal - success.
