What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?
“Look for a pain that you faced as a customer, user, or community member, and let that be the motivation behind your entrepreneurial journey to solve that pain better than anybody else would as if the world comes to an end tomorrow if it isn't solved.”
What is your advice for entrepreneurs in your industry specifically?
“Focus on solving a real need and not just build[ing] another point solution to raise the funding, the sector is already crowded, and buyers are overwhelmed. We should collectively help them solve their pain better.”
What is your advice for coming up with a unique startup idea?
“Look throughout your experience on a particular pain or motivation that lights you up and go deep down to understand why that exists, who all it impacts, what it costs, and once convinced about it, go ahead and solve it. There is only one life.”
What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?
“Have a support system or a hobby. Let work — or for that matter, challenges and failures — not eat you up, let them be a part of you, part of your journey that makes you stronger.”
What is the biggest lesson you learned and what can aspiring entrepreneurs take from it?
“Never take anything for granted, plan for the worst, but execute your best.”
