Why did you start your company or why do you want to innovate inside your company?

Wanted to be part of an early journey with people who I believe and trust.

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

Misaligned interests and knowing things will be going south but you can't change it.

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

Not making mistakes or trying to be perfect before they ran out of money

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

1) your investors aren't your enemies nor are they your friends
2) Build a quick feedback loop and iterate your product fast instead of making things perfect
3) Your employees are the first people you need to sell to prior to customers and investors. A good team is the foundation of your company.
