Entrepreneurship is About How Hard You Can Get Hit And Keep Going

Entrepreneurship is About How Hard You Can Get Hit And Keep Going

“The business is bad, but I think you’re a good entrepreneur. I can give you the money, but what you’ll never get back is the time you spent building a business that was wrong for you”, that was what an investor told Adlin Yusman when he was looking to raise $2 million for one of his previous startups.

In this episode of Raise Your Game, Adlin Yusman, experienced tech founder and the Managing Director of the Malaysian office of high-impact entrepreneurship network Endeavor, speaks to us about lessons learnt from his past mistakes and failures, managing relationships with investors, board members, and co-founders, and when to stop or leave your business versus when to keep going.

We also get into why entrepreneurship is a war, not a battle.
