“Keep asking yourself why”

 

We had the pleasure of being introduced to Tej through a mutual friend of the show, and how glad we are that the intro was made!

 

Tej is an entrepreneur through and through, and isn’t shy about talking about the personal and emotional side of entrepreneurship. After quitting the ‘dream job’ with ESPN in 2007, Tej wasn’t exactly sure what he wanted to do, but he was fed up with being told ‘no’ and knew he needed to be in charge of his own destiny.

 

After a period of consulting for multiple firms, Tej founded his first startup, however, it wasn’t without a number of pivots, rounds of funding, and rebrands that they eventually landed on the company that came to be acquired: Kaptur. After Kaptur, Tej moved on to his second startup which he says ‘failed’, but he undoubtedly learnt a lot of lessons both in a business and personal sense. With years of entrepreneurial experience in his pocket, Tej moved on to Citi Ventures as an Entrepreneur in Residence, and then to Google where he works within there startup team.


This episode really jumps into the emotional side of entrepreneurship, and for anyone considering or currently in the acquisition process, it’s a great listen!

 

 

In this episode we discuss:

 

  • Taking the plunge to start your first venture

  • When, why, and how to pivot

  • Living through the acquisition process

  • The power of persistence

  • Measuring your success as an entrepreneur

  • Bouncing back from ‘failure’

  • And as always, plenty more...
