About Techrides

Smart People, Sweet Rides

Hosted by Edwin Marcial , Techrides videos and Riding Shotgun podcasts tell the stories of entrepreneurs and business leaders. We discuss entrepreneurship, innovation, and leadership while riding in a featured car.

We feature interesting and cool cars, but its not about the car. Its about the stories of entreprenurship, the hardships, the lessons learned, the ups and downs, and the triump. Still the cars make for an interesting setting for our stories.

You have to take time to dream, and then you have to take time to make your dreams come true.
