The Hard Things About Starting: A First-time Founder's Lessons Learned

In this conversation, Gary will tell us about the hard lessons learned and earned from starting cold. From initial ideation, building a completely virtual team, raising your first round, and finally landing a partnership, he will illuminate what it feels like to be "in the trenches" each day. As a startup, WineView is still actively fighting it out, and it will be a great opportunity to hear what the day-to-day looks like, as well as the journey thus far.
