Lessons Learned From Shutting Down My Startup | #33 w/ Claudio Fuentes
Shutting down your company is perhaps one of the most difficult experiences that almost every founder has to go through at least once.
You usually only hear success stories of startups raising millions of dollars and getting millions of users but that is far from the common reality. More than 90% of startups fail.
So how do you deal with this tough reality? How do you communicate the news to investors and employees? And what mindset should you adopt moving forward so that you can get back on your feet?
In this episode, I spoke with Claudio Fuentes about shutting down his previous company, Noonshot. Claudio is a 3x founder and currently the co-founder of Leap, an API that lets you integrate AI Image Generation into any app.
