I recently began an interview series with startup CEOs about how they learned to do what they do starting with Shehzad Daredia, CEO and co-founder of Bop.fm. During the interview we discussed his status as a Thiel Fellowship mentor, teaching others what he knows, and I asked about his advice for young entrepreneurs considering ditching college for life at a startup.
This section of the interview seemed worth presenting separately and so:
College Or Startup? A Thiel Fellowship Mentor Shares His Advice
Since my interview with Shehzad I’ve interviewed Nico Perez of Mixcloud and Bora Celik of Jukely. They’ve also offered unique pieces of advice related to their own startup journeys.
So advice posts will continue to be a follow-up to future interview posts. Enjoy!
