The lies we entrepreneurs tell ourselves, and why that’s ok

Nirav Choksi
Co-founder & CEO

In this talk, Nirav tells us that startups often build products that clients don’t really need. But still we think what we’ve created is a ready gold mine. A lesson amongst others that he shares is not about where an entrepreneur should invest and how much, but when to stop investing when things don’t seem to be working out.
