Early startup learnings from a student founder

  • Is this the right path for me? And more than that, can I motivate others on this path?
  • How will I measure personal success, decoupled from business outcomes?
  • In an unstructured environment without formal mentorship, what type of growth happens? How can I seek out this growth?
  • Am I mentally prepared to tackle the inevitable existential crises that come with building a startup in a competitive market?
  • Outside of work, how can I build intentionality into my personal life?
