"Don't give up! If you never give up, you will have a chance"

Entrepreneurship Dec 02, 2020

When I started Startup Grind Singapore in 2012 summer, I had zero experience in building a community.

Absolutely nothing. Nothing.

After a few months running the community, I wanted to quit. Thankfully, the HQ team in Silicon Valley kept pushing me and the founder kept asking me "don't give up, continue!". I continued doing it until 2016 summer.

Two weeks ago, I heard the same message again from Chris Chae. I think this is the best advice he can give to any entrepreneur.
