Founder of AI Startup Neatsy Shares Their Top Insights

Neatsy co-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. We were fortunate enough to hear some valuable insights during our interview with Artem Semjanow of that will inspire, motivate, and teach aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike. 

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“Business is basically a tree thing. Build thing that scale, find product-market fit, and be a hype-beast.”

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

“I identified that four things bring me joy and happiness in life: my body, my friends, my family, my business. Business is just a quarter of happiness. Pay attention to all four.”

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

“The startup idea should not be unique. You need to have the market and to find the product-market fit. All people have the same ultimate desires, but there is a great variety of ways to fulfill them. So it’s not the idea that should be unique, but the details and ways you are implementing it.”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“You should concentrate not on the goal itself, but on your personal growth and nourishing your ‘craftsmanship.’ Eventually, you will realize that each failure was actually a step in the ladder toward success.”

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

“Once you succeed, everyone forgets about your previous business failures. Keep on trying.”

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

“‘Screw it, let’s do it.’ Thank you, Sir Richard Branson.”
