We all know the importance of “giving back” to the community in order for the startup ecosystem to properly work. Successful founders and entrepreneurs have a lot to share, they’ve taken quite a few smart steps along the way, and perhaps also made some mistakes.
Whether you’ve already built a successful business, are currently setting one up, or are just thinking about trying one day – when it comes down to it, we all want to be inspired. At TechChill, we talk to founders and entrepreneurs day in and day out, so we’re never short on tales of startup heroism and tragedy.
