Barun Singh: Top 3 Tips for Entrepreneurial Success



Future360 caught up with Founder and CTO of WegoWise to get his Top 3 tips for entrepreneurial success. Insights include: stepping outside your comfort zone; staying focused; and not compromising on the quality of your product.



“You’ve got to be prepared to look out of your comfort zone in terms of your partners and products. You may be comfortable with a certain domain, but that may not be the domain that needs the technology the most. So being open to learning about other domains is really helpful.

Number two, trying to make a really high quality product and really staying focused. We’ve been in situations where we could have done one of thirty different things. The hardest thing is to say no, and that you’re going to stick with the one thing that you’ve been doing, and being the best at doing that.

Three, don’t ever compromise on the quality of your product. We do web applications. When we think of our web practices and our design practices, we try to be really diligent. We try to release fewer features and release them really well, than trying to get everything out the door really quickly.”
