Jason heads to Scramble HQ for our 20th podcast to chat with company co-founder Matt Benyon about all things brand building, BJJ and product launching!
Scramble started off as a small idea that Matt had and has now grown to be a symbol of quality and reliability amongst the BJJ community, something they’ve has worked hard to achieve over the years. He and Jason discuss how they built up to that point, some top tips for small businesses just starting out and where the sport could be heading in the future.
