When I graduated from university, I landed a job as a business analyst in a large enterprise. It was a well-paid job, and from the outside, it looked like a solid career path with fine promotion opportunities. But I was bored to death with the rigid enterprise structure. I struggled to keep up my motivation and spent too many long nights watching the NBA.
In many ways, I am a typical millennial. I prefer purpose, flexibility and freedom to express myself over classic enterprise perks such as stability, predictability and safety. So as the entrepreneurial and independence-seeking stereotype that I am, I had to found my own tech startup.
