Rejecting Harvard To Bootstrap A Startup, Raising $5 Million, and Resilience ft. Fireflies AI CTO/Co-founder Sam Udotong

On the third episode of Radically Honest Season 2, your host Dasom Lee chats earnestly with MIT Computer Science and Aerospace Engineering graduate, and CTO and Co-founder of Fireflies AI, an AI note-taking system for your meetings. Only 26 years old he’s graced the cover of Entrepreneur magazine for good reasons.

If everyone loves your product but they’re not willing to pay for it, then you don’t really have a business. – Sam Udotong. 
Fireflies AI began as a project in the MIT classroom. After seven pivots, he now has dozens of employees globally, lectures about AI at Stanford, and has investors from Amazon to Dropbox. Be bold and persistent, believe, and drive your idea to completion. You also have to be realistic. Is your product something people will actually use and value? Is it worth your time? 
So, how can you overcome the emotional battle of entrepreneurship? Listen to the episode to find out.

Join the movement.
