“Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. We only had a concept and a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) and somebody bought it. The most important thing is to make sure that your idea will actually deliver substantial benefit for its users and then get it out in front of them.”

“There’s nothing to lose by putting yourself out there. It is definitely daunting and nerve-wracking, but it’ll always be that way as long as you’d like to build something of your own from scratch rather than piggybacking on other people’s success. Even if you fail, even if you don’t win, it’ll still add to the odds of finally winning something at a future date.”
