Founder of Mobility Startup Idoneo Shares Their Top Insights

Idoneo founder.

Any entrepreneur can tell you, launching a startup is a learning process. Therefore, one of the best things you can do prior to launching a startup of your own is to learn from those who have blazed the trail. Eduardo Clavijo, founder of mobility startup Idoneo, shared valuable insights during our interview that will inspire and motivate aspiring entrepreneurs.

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“‘Everything passes.’ Whether good or bad, every success is ephemeral and every problem or failure, if you work for it, ends up going away.”

What is the best method you’ve found to avoid burnout as an entrepreneur?

“The best method is to follow the rule ‘no work on weekends,’ and that must be sacred in order not to end up burnt out.”

What is your advice for coming up with a unique startup idea?

“Entrepreneurs must be disruptive: ‘be the fish that swims against the tide.’ Unique ideas are born from people who thought of solutions to problems without falling preconceived beliefs and thinking that everything could change.”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“Analyse the ‘why’ of things. Everything happens for a reason, and you can learn from any situation.”

What is the biggest lesson you learned and what can aspiring entrepreneurs take from it?

“That if there is something you really want and you are willing to sacrifice and fight hard for it, you finally get it.”

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

“‘Don’t start a startup under any circumstances.’

By that, I mean that anyone considering entrepreneurship should know that it is 99% effort, work, and unpleasant things, and only 1% positive. If you are willing to work and suffer for just that 1%, then go for it.”
