About Jayati
Company profile(s)

I am a(n):


If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I'm bursting with ideas!

My favorite startups:

Twitter, Square, Box.net, Airbnb

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

Frustrating 48 hour days and rewarding when something great happens when you least expect it.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Definitely making a mistake of trying to launch with a bucketful of features when you should put out a few and test it in Beta

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

I trust too easily so have learned how to always ask for references
I run away with ideas and before long I have built this gigantic platform in my head which I have learned over a period of time to trim and cut back.
I almost have no patience when work doesn't get done. I learned how to be a little more patient.
