The value of what we learn multiplies when we share them with others.
I started my first business 5 years ago and was able to raise a bit more than $1million in VC funding. It was a technology driven last mile logistics services provider for e-commerce businesses. We started with 4 employees (drivers) and grew to 200+ employees in 5 years.
I was forced to shut down my business in late 2020 after taking a massive cashflow hit due to COVID lockdowns and many other reasons, and it became a great learning experience. However, the entrepreneur inside me never died and got even more inspired when I realized that it was a great learning experience, not a failure.
