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

Choose wisely your investors, co-founders and team.
