I am a(n):

First-time entrepreneur

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

I love eating Ramen.

My favorite startups:


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

The most frustrating is knowing you have a great product and wanting to speed it to market, but it's a patient process. The most rewarding, well, that will be when I can take a step back, look at what I've helped create, and be satisfied.

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

Giving up when the roadblocks seem too high. They aren't, you can get around them. However, if an idea is an impossible one, you do have to know when to change it so that it becomes possible, or move on to the next.

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

Perseverance, The importance of networks and connections, and the importance of finding the right people to be on your team.
