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

Collaborating and innovating with customers, mentors and our team is incredibly hard work but loads of fun and immensely rewarding.

Its frustrating when we get strung along by companies that pay lip service to innovation but lack the process, people, resources and motivation to genuinely innovate and evolve.

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

Early stage entrepreneurs who believe the product will sell itself and prioritize software development above all else. Building a great business is hard, really really hard. If you think you can do it without a great support network of mentors, early evangelists, team and family, you are just plain wrong and you will probably fail. Focus on building this network as much or more than the product early on.

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

Managing the tough psychological aspect of being and entrepreneur is almost as important as revenue, investors, cash flow.
Focus on the road ahead, while keeping the short term obstacles in perspective.
Having a great team makes the biggest impact on the business
