Davis Roots co-founder appears on ‘Davisville’

By From page A3 | April 11, 2012

The basic idea behind Davis Roots is to help good ideas grow into companies located in or near Davis. Andrew Hargadon, who co-founded Davis Roots with Anthony Costello, explains on the latest “Davisville” how this new entrepreneurial “accelerator” will work.

In the interview with “Davisville” host Bill Buchanan, Hargadon talks about how to test the validity of an idea for a business. He also discusses why he and Costello are forming the nonprofit here, how and where they expect to find ideas, the supply of entrepreneurs in Davis, and the role of venture capital.

Hargadon, a professor at the UC Davis Graduate School of Management, has three degrees from Stanford University, and formerly worked in product design for Apple.

“Davisville” airs on KDRT, 95.7 FM, at 5:30 p.m. Mondays, 8:30 a.m. Wednesdays, 7:30 a.m. and midnight Saturdays and midnight Sundays. The interview with Hargadon debuted Monday, and will be broadcast through April 22. It is also available in the KDRT archives at http://www.kdrt.org/node/9056.
