In Part Two with David Morken, the team discusses more thoroughly about what it means to be mission ready both individually and corporately.

In this edition of the FDE Podcast, we get a peek into the longtime friendship and partnership (let’s just call it what it is – a bromance) between David Morken and Henry Kaestner, co-Founders of Bandwidth and Republic Wireless. They share with us the divine origins of their relationship (Henry was a direct answer to David’s prayer) and how their relationship translated into a successful business where people are promoted as much as the product.
From the Team
We're very glad you're here! The Faith Driven Entrepreneur is an informal initiative formed from the experiences of a few dozen of us that are committed to our faith, and who believe that God uses entrepreneurs to bring about His Kingdom here on earth. Our mission is to help entrepreneurs who are hard at work on the trail, who are often tired, exhausted, under resourced, and confused. They need rest, support, guidance and provisions, as they get ready to head back out on the trail to fight dragons.
Here's what you can expect from us: a daily blog, weekly podcast, monthly newsletter and a list of resources. Coming soon ... committed prayer time and local community resources. The best way to stay connected is to subscribe to our newsletter below so we can keep you in the loop!
