Learning, From Success and Mistakes.
Many leaders tell you to learn from your mistakes. When starting a company or seeking funding, there are many things that can help or hinder us along the way.
“No, no, no…” Gilad Salinger from Fetchy says. “Learn from your mistakes, but also learn from your successes.”
Fetchy removes the middleman with an automated service that provides international shipping. Used for SMBs (or small to medium sized businesses) to seamlessly send their packages on time, it provides a service that is used today by customers on eBay, Shopify, and Wix through partnerships with FedEx and DHL, among others.
The company works so well because its workers work hard. They all enjoy what they do and thrive in the office out of Mindspace in Tel Aviv. According to Gilad, an open environment allows more space to work on your business in a positive area. And with that, the success is sure to follow.
Dark hours exist. “It’s about getting the story out there. Because I know there’s a market out there and I know there are others, but if you want to succeed, you need to get the story out there.” He begins to tell a story of how his partner left just two months before the recording, and how it helped him push forward into the future. He stops, with the wound still deep, and decides to move on and focus on the future. Learn from successes, not mistakes, remember?
The next goal for them is focused on developing (or focusses on the development of) their products. Fetchy is aiming to open in London this year and continue to expand in the months to come. The ups and the downs make for interesting stories – something that is attractive to Fetchy and the team.
Gilad is a social guy who works at a company that relishes in interaction with people. His advice for talking to investors is annoyingly straightforward. “Start slow, listen to the reaction, and let them imagine for themselves. Think of it like a date.”
That may fill some people with fear. For entrepreneurs like Gilad, it’s the inspiration for a brand new adventure.
