OMX CEO Nicole Verkindt interviewed on E2: “You Don’t Need the Fancy MBA to be an Entrepreneur"

By Nicole Verkindt | February 12, 2018

E2, hosted by Canadian entrepreneur Adam Levinter, is a new business/interview style podcast, showcasing some of the most influential people in the world of entrepreneurship. Each episode, Adam shares in deep conversation extracting some amazing, unabridged storytelling from each guest. While rooted in business, many of the conversations take a personal turn making each interview that much more meaningful. If you subscribe to podcasts like The Tim Ferriss Show, Bulletproof Radio, How I Built This, and The James Altucher Show, you're likely to enjoy E2.


Nicole Verkindt took home “Woman Entrepreneur of the year” in 2017. She sits on numerous boards and is the founder and CEO of OMX which she started after getting fired from a job. In this episode, Nicole discusses how to get a start-up off the ground while you’re working, why she never hires based on University degrees or “letters", and how she feels a strong personal responsibility to the broader network of female entrepreneurs.

Future guests include best-selling author Tucker Max, Ugg Boots founder Brian Smith, and "Junk King" Brian Scudamore of 1 800 GOT JUNK.
