In this week’s episode, we’re joined by a living legend Joe Foster, founder of Reebok.
Coming from a long line of shoemakers, it seemed only natural that Joe Foster follow in his family’s footsteps, but instead Foster decided to push his horizons even further and create a brand that would become a legacy.
Listen in as Foster shares his incredible journey through generations of shoemakers to bring us the global brand we know today: Reebok.
Foster’s entrepreneurial journey is nothing short of inspiring, as he took the company through ups and downs, broke into competitive markets, and created a niche in the market for his brand. Acquired by Adidas in 2005 for a whopping $3.8 billion, Foster has since retired and authored a book: “Shoemaker: The Untold Story of the British Family Firm that Became a Global Brand”.
In this episode, we discuss about the entrepreneurial journey, and everything Foster has learned along the way when it comes to business and brand. There’s a great amount of sharp advice for anyone thinking about starting their own company.
