About Hit Start Media

Hit Start Media is an independent podcasting company that operates remotely in California, Washington, and New York. We create original and branded content for the technology industry, specializing both in nonfiction narrative and conversational formats. With an emphasis on high production value and incisive commentary, we take pride in thoughtful and deliberate show development. Our first series, Execute: The Story of Carta, was commissioned in 2018.

Hit Start was founded by Theo Miller, one of the original team members at Carta, a late-stage fintech startup based in San Francisco. Theo blogs for platforms like Forbes, CNBC, and Hacker Noon. He also serves as a judge for UC Berkeley’s annual entrepreneurship contest.

“Working with the Hit Start team has made it possible to build our podcast from the ground up. From the first brainstorm all the way up until our latest metrics sync, I've appreciated their attention to detail, creativity, and professionalism. If you’re considering launching a podcast on your own—don’t. These people are pros.”
