I launched my start-up less than three weeks ago and met about 50 people or so since then. Obviously, I did not work on the product as much as I would have liked to. The things is, especially at such an early stage, it was almost impossible to know which meeting would be productive and which would not. A lot of these meetings were actually tremendously helpful and it made me realize that, as a startup founder, I need to build a team asap instead of being a one man show. However, I’ll try to stop meeting people between 9am and 5pm from now on.
