How do they grow from purely idea to a scalable company? What are the things the watch out for? How do they bootstrap? How do they figure out what market to focus on? What is it like to run their own companies? How do they get customers and revenue? When and How do they raise funding? When and how to hire the right talents? What are the challengers to overcome? What are the excitements and rewards so far? When do they go all-in?
