Hi Anon,

The most important thing to remember as an entrepreneur is that it is never easy. As many other successful entrepreneurs would share, you are bound to encounter setbacks and failures. The key thing is to always keep going and never lose the desire and belief.

When I first started, I made an effort to speak to as many people as possible. Never be shy to share your idea. You will be surprised by the insights you can gain by speaking to more people.

Another important thing is to find a mentor. Finding a good mentor can help a founder feel less lonely. A good mentor can help to provide sound input as you grow your startup. As with all relationships, it can't be forced. While finding good mentors is never easy, it is something that will help you in the long run.​​​

Why must it be a tech startup? Are you familiar with the intricacies of the tech world that you know will be a good solution to whatever problem you're facing. Is there any merit to your solution that is actually helpful or simply doing it because it's the cool new things now?

I see tech as a way of automating manual processes to make life easier, if you can find the headache-inducing manual process then you can find a suitable tech solution to it. Find the problem to solve first before jumping onto a solution.

Find a cofounder who knows computing. The tech side is more important than the business side.

Steve Jobs could never succeed without his co-founder. SG business grads are a dime a dozen. Just because they studied business, doesn't mean they got connections for funding.

Don’t need to put words into my mouth thanks. Business is important, finding funding contracts cust etc. No use having the best technology if you’re keeping it to yourself and the whole world don’t even know it exisit
