The Startup Journey

The Seed – The Startup Journey is a series of interviews with startup founders. It is made for YOU, the curious student, talented innovator, and aspiring entrepreneur. 

Our mission is to explore the startup journeys and advice of founders and share what we learned, in hopes of inspiring and planting the seed of innovation & creativity in the minds of our audience


Don't have time to listen to hour-long podcasts?

Our interviews are short & sweet! (If an episode is longer than 20 minutes, contact us (bottom of page) and Rick (the founder) will personally apologize for wasting your time)

Wanting to learn more about entrepreneurship, but not sure how to start? 

What better way to learn how to start a company, besides actually doing it, than to hear how others did it! 

Starting a business, but running into problems? 

Listen to how other founders tackle their greatest challenges! You can also submit questions and we will ask them for you!

About Us


The Seed – The Startup Journey is founded by Rick Liu, along with his graphic designer sister Cynthia Liu. It started in May 2020 as a way for Rick to learn more about entrepreneurship and meet more people. He decided to bring value by sharing what he has learned with aspiring entrepreneurs in a quick, engaging, and informative manner. 

We hope that you will grow along with us! Let us watch our seeds of innovation & creativity grow and prosper 🌱
