DON’T STOP ASKING QUESTIONS

Keep at it, communicate, ask lots of questions and build a strong network of mentors who have grown businesses.  TOM PUGH-JONES & JOLYON FERRIER, PROGRESS PEOPLE

REMAIN FOCUSED

Stay on top of things and stay focused on the main project. It is very easy to get excited and start planning new projects before you have even got the first one off the ground. 
JAMES ROBBINS, DRYSURE

MOVE ON UP

Get out of the house as soon as possible! It may seem daunting, but hot- desking and shared office spaces make the move really easy.
 JESSICA WILLIAMS, SIDEKICKS

STAY CURIOUS

Opportunities come from the places you least expect them. Be generous with your time, and be curious about other businesses. Network for the sake of learning and building relationships. DANIEL GODSALL & HELEN SACHEV, WOMBA

PASSION IS KEY

There’s no magic formula for success, but if you get the fundamentals right – by picking a project you’re passionate about, and a co-founder you trust – you’ll be surprised at how much everything else falls into place.
 JAMES GUPTA & OMAIR VAIYANI, SYNAP

CUSTOMERS FIRST

Keeping the customer top of mind. A lot of people may say this, but it’s critical to listen and take notice of their feedback. OLIVER BRIDGE, CORNERSTONE
