Entrepreneur

If you are an entrepreneur, why?
I want to change the world.

My favorite startups:

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
The only frustrating item is not having enough time to do everything... everything else is 100% rewarding. Especially recently having people in 9 countries volunteering to promote Geeklist at meetups and hackathons. That's awesome.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
Underestimating the amount of time it takes to build, grow and gain traction and how much money it takes to get there.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
Choose wisely your investors, co-founders and team.
