I am a(n):

Entrepreneur

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I want to change the world.

My favorite startups:

Airbnb, Songza, Skillshare, Quora, and Foursquare!

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

Most Rewarding: when you see the impact of what you're building and that it's creating a positive influence in the world.

Most frustrating: dealing with limited resources.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Mismanaging resources. This can be misspending money, misplacing team focus, or even misusing human capital (getting the wrong people for the job).

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

Spend every dollar as if it's your last but don't be afraid to spend either.

Listen to your users but also look at the numbers.

Never give up on the vision but know when to pivot the product.

Full bio

A NY Entrepreneur who loves his dog and realized the best way to share your life with your dog is to meet new friends together. Thus MatchPuppy was born where owners can arrange and join playdates, whether for finding matches for a quick stroll in the park or just meeting up with other dog owners and their dogs to play some fetch and sniff some butts.
