How do you know when to persevere vs pivot?
I have been seeking entrepreneurial activities for a long time. These are risky endeavors. Ironically, I bought into the notion that staying put is the riskiest move, so taking risks is a good way of mitigating long term career risks. What does this dilemma show about me?
How do you assemble/recruit a high performance team at different phases of your startup?
Can you share more about smart cities? Cities and municipal government can provide unique opportunities for startups and I would like to know how to best reach out to local governments and know how they think and implement new technology.
What advise do you have for entrepreneurs who doesn't have disruptive product but rather a differentiating solutions in a growing market (such as in wireless communications) where incumbent threat always exist?
How do you see an introvert running a startup as a CEO? I know from the past activities I did that I enjoy reading books, being in my head/alone, low tolerance of BS. Low tolerance of BS is a problem of mine. I’d appreciate any imsights.
When exploring a new startup idea, is there a higher success rate in staying in the same industry as before (to leverage your experience, knowledge and network) vs. jumping into something with a new learning curve?
In the case of a technology transferred from a research lab, how do you know when to transition from research to startup? how would you judge that your product is ready enough?
Yes thank you
