What are your top tips for entrepreneurial success?

Be passionate, this is not the time to be neutral about social issues, conservation of the environment. 

A collection of small voices makes a big voice. So collaboration is key. 

Forget normal and what was before, and define what we want the future to look like today, and then go and fetch that from the future 

Be fair. Kindness is the best investment we can make and pays off in unexpected ways. 

For women, try not to be the worse version of men in business, let’s be ourselves.
