Why am i doing this? Highs and lows of starting up

Ever heard of people trying to change the world, fighting against all odds? These peculiar and particular people, are the founders of new tech businesses that are disrupting and remodelling the world in every sector…

Well, at Launch22 we are proud to host amazing members, who are incredibly keen on talking about the highs and lows of doing just that! In this piece we share some suggestions from Faheem, founder of Bitbreaks, a disruptive music and video production start up (click here- you know you want to find out more).

We think this is the right piece for you! Provided you are willing to start your own business…

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO CREATE BITBREAKS?

That starts from when you begin to ask yourself what you enjoy, what you’re good at and what you really want to do for a living. I enjoyed working in law but I wanted to do something from scratch. Doing that in music technology seemed like a no-brainer.

WHAT’S THE EXCITING PART OF HAVING YOUR OWN BUSINESS? AND THE CHALLENGE? 

Stepping out of my comfort zone is what i would say the most challenging and exciting thing it’s, like an odd combination of feelings that keeps me stressed and performing everyday… I’d suggest it to everyone though!

Another aspect I love is being able to empathise with customers. Understanding what they need is super important.
