These profiles give entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase themselves and tell their story. So if you are an entrepreneur, a serial entrepreneur, or even an aspiring entrepreneur, we'd like to hear from you.

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I want to invent something cool.

My favorite startups:

Zilok, Factual, Academia.edu

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Frustrating is being so busy and not having time to go deep on anything.

Rewarding is seeing your creation add value.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Spending too much time rushing and not enough time thinking strategically and researching

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

1. Things are never as serious or important as they feel at the time
2. Deal with important and difficult issues as they arise
3. Slowing down and doing research is more productive than racing around without direction
