Jie and I are so honored to be featured on the cover of Forbes Japan’s September issue that was released this week. The cover story was titled “Top 55 Japanese Women who are fighting in the world with their mission” (excuse the literal translation!)…
I think you showed integrity and vision. The worst thing you could have done is to take that money, have everyone quit their jobs, and give up the sweat and time… and then have to shut it down and tick off investors. It’s always hard to walk away from something you believe in and have put in tons of time and effort. It takes guts to do that, congrats.
Great article. I think the biggest failing as a founder is to avoid making the hard decision and “deciding by not deciding.”
I also love your comments on interpreting user feedback and shared them with my team.
