Hints for a startup entrepreneur

Last week Helsinki Think Company organized a session with Micke Paqvalén, an experienced internet business innovator and the founder of Kiosked. Micke gave his honest insight to the challenging and sometimes harsh but rewarding life of the startup entrepreneur.

My personal main three take-aways:

  • “Do not try to be too smart.”
  • “Be agile – pivot daily”
  • “The innovators do not change the world, the users are”.

Edit May 25: I went through my notes and picked up some more findings from the discussion with Micke. Anything we entrepreneurs can learn and take into the practice?
