Today on The Startup Chat, Steli and Hiten talk about how startups grow you as you grow them.
Being part of a startup, whether you own it or you work at one, changes you as a person. There are a lot of opportunities to learn and improve yourself. It is safe to say that who you were at the early stages of your startup journey changes after you’ve been involved in it for a while or after you’ve left it – and this is a good thing.
