- How their previous startups (service businesses) helped to identify the opportunity and also validate the idea.
- How Martin and Michael bootstrapped with just ‘tens of thousands of dollars' and why too much bootstrapping is not a good thing.
- Why applying for Y Combinator was an amazing experience for the team even though they didn't get accepted.
- How the two co-founders realized that they were often ‘clashing' and what they decided to do about it.
- “Anything is possible. You just have to set a goal and then try to achieve it.”
