Hubspot Scholarships Bring Founders to US for GANRally

By: Sebastian Levin, Co-Founder of Merit HR

The GAN Rally is an event that unites a cosmopolitan group of entrepreneurs, (in seed capital stage) with managing directors of accelerators, and entrepreneurs who have already climbed that stage.

I think the initiative is spectacular, you go into a room in which you do not know anyone and a place to sit is not predetermined. Therefore, you can sit next to anyone without knowing who it is or what does he/she do.
After a while, you discover that the person sitting next to you is an expert in a certain field and is in charge of some workshop or talk that can be useful for you.

It Really Is All About The Founder

It’s All About World Domination

It’s pretty easy for a startup’s goal in life to be “world domination”. You hear it in pitches all the time.

How many founders do you know who have said: “Once we get all of the customers in this segment, we’ll be a billion-dollar company.”

It’s a trap that many startups fall into. They believe that if they get every customer they will be okay. They will survive. They will get an exit. They will have reached the pinnacle of their existence.
