Insights From the Founder of Smart Window Startup Tynt Technologies

Tynt Technologies 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 Ameen Saafir of Tynt Technologies that will inspire, motivate, and teach aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike.

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“Figure out what you’re best in the world at and pursue that. Sometimes we get ideas that are good but are outside of our area of expertise. It is really hard to be successful in those types of endeavors. But if you are the best in the world at something, doesn’t matter what that is — it could be baking a certain type of dessert — your chances of being successful are much higher.”

What is your advice for entrepreneurs in your industry specifically?

“Make sure you or someone on your team understands what the path to a product looks like. If you haven’t done it before, then it’s likely much longer and [more] complex than you think.”

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

“Ideas don’t really matter that much, honestly. It all comes down to execution. That is why you need to be the best in the world at whatever you are doing. Think about it this way, if you knew 10 other people had the exact same idea as you at the same time, would you still pursue it? Why would you be successful when they aren’t?”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“I think you either have this trait, or you don’t. It’s something you should know about yourself before you set out on your own. Have you had a relatively easy time in life, or have you had to fight a lot for what you have.”

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

“Passion really matters when it comes to getting people on board with your idea, whether that be potential employees, investors, or partners. If you really believe in what you are doing and that comes across naturally, then people will buy into that. If you’re unsure of what you are doing, what your purpose is, how you are doing to get there, people will see that too.”
