Things to keep in mind

When starting up

This question came up yesterday from Rahul when I was in the Inker Robotics Startup Stories room on Clubhouse yesterday.

This note captures my responses to the question.

  1. Brace for a 3 to 5 year journey. It’s gonna take a while & there will be bad days.

  2. People networks for support & guidance are critical. Seek them out.

  3. Startups are about economics. Do not get too enamoured with ideas.

  4. It’s an execution game. Keep making progress; every day, every week.

  5. Keep talking to customers. Keep discovering & figuring out how to add value.
