Quotes

"As startups do, [we were] trying to balance things on a knife's edge. We were waiting to get clearance and then we would have lots of money, and if we did not get clearance, we would have zero money." (9:25) - Vance Clement

"[A good accelerator] can be really valuable with helping you grow, helping you learn, but then helping you expand your network in areas where you may not have a lot of contacts." (15:11) -Spencer Jones

"It'll become painfully obvious when it's time to leave your current employer for your entrepreneurial endeavor." (28:40) Spencer Jones

"A simple rule: the rule of PI, it's going to take 3.14 times longer than you think. And cost 3.14 times as much money." (37:14) Spencer Jones
