Welcome to the 212th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc.'s editor in chief, James Ledbetter.

First, we discuss Inc.’s Founders House at SXSW, including what we learned from Mailchimp CEO and cofounder Ben Chestnut and from Boxed CEO and cofounder Chieh Huang -- and from all the scooters littering Austin.

Next, we talk battery power and the entrepreneurs racing to improve the technology powering the smartphones and electric cars that are increasingly crucial to modern life. Inc. editor-at-large Maria Aspan discusses her feature story in our March/April issue about battery-storage startup Cadenza Innovation, and its founder and CEO, Christina Lampe-Onnerud.

Finally, Inc. executive director of editorial Jon Fine details the amazing journey of Cheekys Brand founder Jessi Roberts, the author of an excellent new book: Backroads Boss Lady: Happiness Ain't a Side Hustle (Grand Central Publishing), which published last week.
