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

It's in my blood. My entire family (father, uncles, even my grandmother!) are entrepreneurs.

My favorite startups:

Buffer, Uber, Stripe, Boost.VC

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

Frustrating: air-mattresses, zero sleep, PB&J. Rewarding: Knowing I'll be laughing about all the frustrating stuff soon :)

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

There are no mistakes. Unless you don't measure & fix them.

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

Experiment. Fail fast. Embrace the chaos.
