ABOUT the Host & Producer


Florian Kandler

Hey, fellow startupper! My name is Florian Kandler (this is me on Facebook & LinkedIn), executive producer and host of the Startup Milestones podcast. 

I’m a three-time founder, two of my companies raised venture capital of a total of over € 3.000.000,- from VCs and Angels in Europe and the USA. And I’m a startup fundraising coach at and

Some of you may also know me as the official pitch coach of a popular startup-TV show.

Amazing people helped me when I got started on my startup journey. I adopted this mindset of “paying it forward” – so for the last four years I’ve been very active in helping startup founders by mentoring, coaching, giving talks, and holding workshops. I want to make my contribution.  

The reason I started Startup Milestones was that I was looking for a scalable way to help as many startup founders across the continent as possible – especially those who are working on their first startup or are thinking about starting a startup. 

Paying it forward, and the exchange of experience and information are important pillars of any successful startup ecosystem! This podcast is my way of contributing to strengthening that pillar for the European startup ecosystem.

If you enjoy the podcast, please share it.

Sincerely yours, 

Florian Kandler
– Keep up that startup spirit!
