“Make mistakes often but don’t repeat the same mistakes often, is what I tell young founders. I am always so enthused to mentor and guide young founders since they can quickly learn from my experience of starting up with no resources, and I am always happy to give back more to the startup community,” wrote Ritesh Agarwal. He wrapped up his post with a snippet from the reality show Shark Tank India 3, where he appears as one of the sharks - the term used for the judges on the show.
