Insights From the Founder of AI Startup Reread

Reread founder, Oliver Rodwell.

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 Oliver Rodwell of Reread that will inspire, motivate, and teach aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike.

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“Be bold. Having an idea and conviction is easy. To be successful you need to be bold, break the rules, push the boundaries, make it happen!”

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

“Laughter. Have a team you can have a joke with. When you can break the tension of failure with humour or make light of a serious situation, it allows you to relax — relaxation is hard to come by when your mind is running at a million miles an hour.”

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

“Founder fit is key. Learn from your own experience, don’t try to guess at problems you don’t understand.”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“Challenges help you grow. If it’s not challenging, it’s not worth it. For failure, learn from salespeople, head up, move on.”

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

“If you don’t do it, no one else will. You have to be responsible for everything in some way. It’s hard to stomach, but once you get that in your head, things stop going wrong.”

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

“If you hear a criticism once, ignore it. If you hear it three times, act.”
