I loved presenting to the UCL entrepreneurs society this past Friday on what I've done, my career journey, and some thoughts on being an entrepreneur. I love talking to university students - the passion, optimism about the future, and willingness to take risks all are characteristics I admire deeply.
Below are some of the guidance I shared:
Don't be a douche - take all meetings and give back
Seed now - and harvest later. Optimize learning above all else - don't worry about the money
Entrepreneurship isn't for everyone - don't succumb to the pressure
Do your own startup if you have an idea, team, or a runway; otherwise work for a startup instead
As your go through career, collect team members you think would be great
And surround yourself with good mentors who can help you
