NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM today announced the launch of "Entrepreneurs are Everywhere," an all-new show hosted by Steve Blank, entrepreneur-turned-educator and creator of the Lean Startup movement.  The show will premiere on Thursday, August 27, 2015, at 4:00 pm ET on SiriusXM's Business Radio Powered by the Wharton School channel 111.

SiriusXM's "Entrepreneurs are Everywhere" will feature founders of companies from across the United States sharing their experience of what it takes to build a startup - from restaurants, to rocket scientists, to on-line groceries, to on-line gifts and more.  The SiriusXM show will examine the DNA of entrepreneurs – what makes them tick, how they came up with their ideas – and, explore the habits that make them successful, and the highs, lows and pivots that pushed them forward.

"Everyone has a dream of starting their own business, of being their own boss," said Steve Blank. "'Entrepreneurs are Everywhere' will offer SiriusXM listeners across the country battle-tested, practical advice on how to make their idea a reality.  Whether you drive a Tesla or a Ford F150, this is the show for you.  It is the show for the 99% of America – those with the passion, smarts and know-how to make their dreams come true."

"SiriusXM is at the forefront of broadcasting shows hosted by ambitious, creative people sharing their success stories and we are excited to welcome Steve Blank, one of the most respected entrepreneurs in the world who literally wrote the book on how to succeed in a startup," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.  "Steve has developed a true and tested formula for launching highly successful businesses and we are thrilled to have him share that knowledge and insight with SiriusXM listeners across the country."

"Entrepreneurs Are Everywhere," will air Thursdays at 4:00 pm ET on SiriusXM's Business Radio Powered by the Wharton School channel 111 and replay Saturdays at 11:00 am ET and Sundays at 5:00 pm ET.  The show will also be available through the SiriusXM App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online, and on SiriusXM On Demand for subscribers listening via smartphones and other connected devices or online at siriusxm.com.  

Steve Blank has changed how startups are built and how entrepreneurship is taught around the globe. His May 2013 Harvard Business Review article on the Lean Startup defined the movement.  Steve is widely recognized as a thought leader on startups and innovation. His books - The Startup Owner's Manual and The Four Steps to the Epiphany - and blog have redefined how to build successful startups, and his Lean LaunchPad class at Stanford, Berkeley, Columbia and NYU has redefined how entrepreneurship is taught. His articles regularly appear in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, The Atlantic and Huffington Post.

Business Radio Powered by the Wharton School is the first channel to offer direct access to the world's top business minds and broadcasts from The Wharton School's historic Ivy League campus and Silicon Valley.  The exclusive SiriusXM channel gives listeners exclusive access to the world's brightest minds in business and education and features a wide range of original shows hosted by one of the most cited and published faculties of all top-tier business schools.  Regular guests include world-renowned executives, captains of industry, thought leaders, and battle-tested experts.
