I enjoy working with start-ups because it is often a team of young people trying to solve interesting challenges, and you have to help them figure out the best way to do that, while trying to provide them with the pieces of the puzzle they need to take their idea all the way to fruition. I enjoy the energy of it, and the disruptive nature of start-ups. These things motivate me a lot to try and give the best advice I can, and to help motivate people to solve the challenges they face, and build the dreams in their minds.
