Maker’s Wave is a series of essays and a brand new podcast launching soon, hosted by Bora Celik.

Maker’s Wave aims to explore the secrets of creativity leading to amazing products, brands, and art. In addition to sharing his own essays on these topics, Bora will talk to founders and makers about their journey, as well as thought leaders in creativity and innovation.

He'll ask about their habits, rituals, and processes for giving birth to their creations from ideation to launch. Just like how a surfer might position, prepare for, take off, and ride a wave.

He aims to inspire other makers by giving them a behind-the-scenes look into the creation process.

Bora is the founder/CEO of Subkit & who had also co-founded the world’s first concert subscription service. As a founder, he has raised over $20M from top VCs who led rounds for Shopify and Spotify.

Bora’s startups have been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Forbes, Fortune, and many others. He’s been interviewed on BBC and CNBC.

Bora is an avid surfer who enjoys dawn patrols in the Atlantic's freezing winter temperatures.
