Lighthouse London Podcast: Building a 20,000-strong community in 1 year: The creation and rise of Chew.tv with Ben Bowler

A couple of weeks ago I spent a morning sitting down with Tom from Lighthouse London. The agency works with startups to bring their ideas into reality. Sitting down in the meeting room come studio I leaned quickly that Tom was also an established drum and bass DJ. I just had to invite him down to DJ at one of our office streams.

Here’s the audio from the podcast where we talk about DJing, startups and community building. Along the way we also cover

  • How a startup accelerator helped shape the business
  • How the team manage development and feature requests
  • Why loud grime music is more important than pleasing the neighbours

And here’s Tom DJing at our office mixup:

Hi, my names Ben and I’m traveling around the world with my bike, my paraglider and my laptop. Along the way I’m sharing the highs and lows of the life on the road. And my picks of the best places to bikepack, enjoy freeflight and work as a digital nomad. Each week I share a new video update, city guide or live streams with other adventurers I’ve met along the way.
