We are increasingly being asked by these partners – traditional brands and disruptive newcomers, creators and creatives – to connect the dots between them. This partnership between Vanity Fair, Founders Forum and our Grow by Facebook programme for The Making of… podcast is an exciting and vital component of that ambition to help business leaders keep ahead by creating and curating insightful content and experiences.”

These stories have always been shared in the privacy of Founders Forum events. What is exciting about the podcast is that we can now share these incredible and often moving stories with a wider audience, who will hopefully enjoy and learn from them - as much as we have. We are delighted to have co-created this podcast with our partners Vanity Fair and Grow by Facebook.”
