Questions

I'm after my first startup fail and main reason for that was lack of experience, hard idea and due to my age, limitations. Right now my partner wants to create next company, but I've started considering other idea - I'm 16. Cannot I delay my startup for 2 years, for example, and during this period actively learn, gain contacts, do other projects (Currently, I've started one very experiencing) and so on? Also - I'm on a good way to become front&back end developer and I think, mastering it, before getting into startup could be very helpful for my future startups. What do you think? Thanks

Hello -

Congrats on venturing into being a young entrepreneur. I began my first business around your age as well and currently mentor high school students and girls in STEM. I've been through exactly what you have been going through at your age and being in business for yourself or with a partner is not an easy job. Because you are so young, you have all the time in the world to run a business. If you both feel in your heart and minds that this is what you want to do, then I would encourage you to pursue your dreams. You have years and years to learn. So don't try to rush it. Just go with your heart. Being young, means you can afford to make mistakes and experiment. Perhaps developing your tech skills would be a better choice at the moment until you feel more comfortable. If you would like to schedule a call, I can advise you more.
