Where are you on your Founder journey?

Steve

The Scrappy Founder

Steve (Scrappy) is a hardworking entrepreneur, dedicating 80 hours a week to his venture. He’s a one-man show (or he has cobbled together a handful of friends and associates), seeking free help from engineers and other talents, and even giving away ownership. His passion drives him, but the pressure to succeed is intense. He’s determined to prove his worth and make his dream a reality.
