Inside the Lab #10: Preparation

Hello, fam 👋🏾

This week I have been banging my head on the wall in frustration in part and celebrating small wins in other parts. If you thought this week was chaotic, I am sure that next week has a surprise for me. There are a number of significant events happening next week and we are anticipating many meetings, conversations and questions. We don’t know how different user groups and investors will react. Some may argue that the unknowns in building a startup is what makes building so exciting.

Amidst chaos, the rock is unmoved…
