Founding a startup is always a challenge. Founding a startup as a student presents an entirely different set of additional challenges — and requires unique resources to meet those needs.

In this episode of Ballard Spahr’s podcast Business Better, the law firm celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Ballard Academy for Student Entrepreneurs (BASE) program, an in-house legal accelerator that Ballard Spahr developed in 2013 to support student-owned and -operated ventures.

They’re joined by the founders of mental wellness platform NeuroFlow, a fast-growing Philadelphia-based startup, who participated in the BASE 3.0. CEO Christopher Molaro and COO Adam Pardes discuss starting a company during graduate school, leveraging BASE as a resource, and how they are continuing to grow the company today.

Kimberly Klayman, a partner in Ballard Spahr’s Philadelphia office, hosts the conversation.
