In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Mars Discovery District talks with Ali Asaria, CEO and founder of Tulip, a company that specializes in building apps.
The founder talks about how he traveled across the country and approached a list of 60 investors to raise money for his business. However, it became clear that Asaria was going to come up short on his targets — in fact, he wouldn’t even be able to pay employee salaries.
However, that failure helped lead him to a creative compromise with his engineering team, which eventually helped him create Tulip. That experience taught Asaria that a company is a sum of its parts, and that if its individual members are willing to work as a tribe, the company can become a much larger success.
