Cancelled: First Time Tech Founders: The Questions You Didn’t Know to Ask

Walking down the lonely road of tech entrepreneurship can be challenging. There are dozens of unexpected hurdles in between an idea and a self-sustaining business. When you sign-up to be a CEO or founder, it can be overwhelming to manage accounting, staffing, real estate, and human resources on your own. The less glamorous aspects of scaling a business are often the most important.
