A note about Galata: A Podcast from Puneeth Suraana: Galata is a word from the Indian language Kannada that means the noise caused by a ruckus. Each episode features an interview about starting up, testing ideas, creating a team, building something worthwhile and adding value to other people’s lives. Most of all, The Galata Podcast is about how you are delivering on your audacious promise.
