Travel is changing - are you keeping up with your guest's needs with Madison Rifkin

August 17, 2023

This week’s podcast features serial entrepreneur, Mount founder and CEO, Madison Rifkin. Madi’s unique story, starting with her first invention at the age of 12, is quite remarkable. Today she shares with us exactly what led her to that early invention, how she transformed that idea into a full blown experience-booking platform and the lessons she learned thus far as a female CEO and founder.

Madi shares her journey of: 

  • How being a forgetful pre-teen led her to having her own patent at just 15 years old!
  • Attending Northwestern University and developing her bike lock idea into a full-blown company
  • COVID’s impact on her bike lock business and the pivot to an experience-based business
  • The value of high touch experiences over networking en masse
  • The importance of being fully authentic and confident in yourself
