Vator’s community is the home to entrepreneurs who embrace their passion and follow their dreams. Our profiles allow members to express themselves by sharing their interests, lessons learned, as well as bits and pieces of their roller-coaster journey.

Companies I've founded or co-founded:

If you are an entrepreneur, why?
I want to do things that very few people have done.
My favorite startups:
What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?
Frustrating: it's so hard to build a great company and it can take years to establish credibility and reputation.
Rewarding: changing the world, building products, creating a place where people love to work, creating careers and friendships.
What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?
Thinking they can do it on their own (you need a great core team), raising too much venture money, losing control, hiring the wrong people. Well, that's 4 things...
What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?
1. Get a great core team around you.
2. Stick with it. Success might take 5-10 years.
3. Enjoy the ride -- don't just focus on the outcome or end-goal.
