Companies and Investments
As far as lessons learned, I have two. The first lesson is that you have to be persistent. You cannot give up if you want success. My second lesson would be to consider going into a business that you care about. Most of the companies we help were founded by people looking for a personal solution or having a personal concern. If you understand a problem, that you will have a greater odds of coming up with the solution to the problem.
