I am a(n):


If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

I want to change the world.

My favorite startups:

Diabeto, Oscar, Better, Scanadu, Watsi

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

Daily ups and downs.

You are constantly selling yourself and your vision to everyone, even to your own teammates. That can get frustrating. So can seeing the bank account getting closer to 0.

Most rewarding is releasing a live product that is truly helping some group of people in a new way, not found anywhere else. Just one feedback email from a satisfied user is enough to make your day and keep you moving in the right direction.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs/innovators make?

Not focusing on what matters most from day 1.

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

- Don't add unnecessary baggage to your daily routine
- Have a user acquisition strategy (and follow it!) from day 1
- Sell and/or gain 5,000 users before ever having any sort of product
