5 Insights From the Founders of Social Media Startup Privee

Privee founders.

Any entrepreneur can tell you that 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 Akul Bali and Josh Gottesman of Privee, that will inspire, motivate, and teach aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike.

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“Go for it, but take calculated risks. The hardest part is diving in fully.”

What is your advice for entrepreneurs in your industry specifically?

“We’re very early, so [we’re] still learning this ourselves … but our advice is to focus on building a great product first, and everything else will follow.”

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

“First ask yourself why you want to build a startup. Why you want to do a startup is going to strongly impact what sort of ideas make sense for you [and what] you’ll be interested in. Then read a lot and pay attention to where problems [and] common issues arise in your readings and everyday life.”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“Learn from your mistakes. They’re rarely the end of the world.”

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

“Get feedback from as many people as possible, but make sure they’re in your target market to get the right feedback.”
