“Listen to your gut!”
– Various startup founders on 1st panel discussion on giving up a job and starting up!
This week, we have a slightly different take on our show. We have a panel discussion with 4 different folks. They’re Dinesh Sen (leftmost on pic), Naga Subramanya (center top) Shankarnarayan (center bottom) and Piyush Kedia (rightmost). They’re all startup founders in various stages of their startup. Finally, they’ve all left secure, well paying jobs to startup up. Hence, I think they’re most apt to talk about giving up a job to start up!
