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

My favorite startups:

Task Rabbit, LikeBright

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

Learning how to be patient when you're in a continual rush to grow your product/user base. Pacing yourself when there are inevitable bumps in the road and the reward of keeping the endurance of perseverance is progress.

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

Thinking that funding is the ultimate goal

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

Expect the obstacles and make friends with them opposed to fighting them. Don't get hung up on seeking funding if you don't have to. Embrace and celebrate the milestones no matter how big or small and reflect on what you learned to reach them.
