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

the most frustrating is the time boundaries in a single day. I would love to live 30 hours days.
the most rewarting is the achievement feeling of your work hours, and the awareness that's up to you to make the difference.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

thinking to be supehumans: knowledge of not knowing is the first skill needed, and many of us, many times just lack it.

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

- it's all about the right people in the right place.A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, but a new venture is more like a net than like a chain. Thus reciprocal support can make a real difference.
- you will fail, for sure and many times. It's all about the quality of your failures and about your ability to stand up again.
- it's not about your fu**ing idea, but about how it relieves your customers' pain

Full bio

My past experience is being CEO of an IT consulting company focusing on web and mobile since 2002. During the past years I focused on agile development  and as intellJAM we managed many projects such as ecommerce, dating platform, news. We also developed two side projects: a classified platform and a SMS sending platform for health industry. Both of them lacked focus on commercial viability and marketing. Today I know that founding those projects only on technical skill was an error.

In the near past I used to work for Ferrari and currently I have a consulting project with Qurami, a startup that aims to redeem the time you would waste in line.  That's just a small part of my time since I devote 90% of my working time to ringpay.
