Levi shares some of his life journey so far as a young entrepreneur who has been involved in a few start-ups already and recently co-founded Partly.  We talk about that venture which builds software solutions to solve difficult problems in the automotive parts industry.  As well as rapid growth and what he's learned raising $1.7 million in funding we also learn about his childhood and startups at University as well as his working at Rocketlab and the key things he learned there as an engineer.  Some of the key takeaways from our discussion:

  • Don’t be afraid to be ambitious – aim high
  • Get the right people involved and establish a good culture
  • Learn from what you try at first, nothing is wasted – even if not a “success” it provides fuel for the next initiative
  • Be prepared to have hard conversations if things are going along “fine”
  • You may need to ask some hard questions and pivot to a new approach rather than just surviving
