Last week, I spoke to a Harvard class on “Stories from the Bronto Journey.” The class was offered as part of the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard (TECH) and consisted mainly of undergraduates — almost 200 of them! Excited to see so much enthusiasm for technology and entrepreneurship.
Here are some takeaways from my talk:
- Entrepreneurism is often less about the “what” and more about the “how”. Innovation is how you execute and approach the challenges.
- My entrepreneurial journey was very long and with five stages — the before, the genesis, the grind, the graduation and the after. The grind is long, hard and usually uncelebrated — but it makes all the difference.
- Graduations (or exits) can be bittersweet. Build your art and someone else will find it as attractive as you.
