Telecure, a virtual medical consultation service, graduated this Summer from the San Francisco Founder Institute.

Below are three simple - yet impactful - lessons, Founder and CEO, Garrick Hismatullin, learned while building his company in four short months:

 

"We have graduated from the Founder Institute.

It has been an interesting journey which had exceeded all of my expectations. I originally came into the Founder Institute program with an idea for a social media application. Just two months later we have a medical company with a growing user base.

Here are the most important lessons I learned at the Founder Institute;


1. Don't build stuff until you have validated your idea.

2. The only people who can validate your idea are your customers.

3. Dream big, die trying."
