“The hardest thing for anyone to do is raise capital. Most startup companies actually fail. And failing I think Peter Thiel said it best is if you’re gonna fail, fail fast.”,

“I discovered the internet as we now sort of live our daily lives through in ‘95 as an undergraduate at Oxford as a biochemistry major. And I don’t really have much fun with Biochemistry. I got completely addicted to, you know, messing around on the web.”

“In sales, what you wanna do is get to the next stage. So think about it like dating, you know, Can I get your phone number? Can I meet you for a coffee? There’s a process, a journey that you go on. But it’s the same thing as selling yourself.”
