Dina Kaplan of Blip.tv Urges Entrepreneurs: “Go For It And Trust Your Gut”
Mar 18, 2012
Dina Kaplan, co-founder of Blip.tv, a platform for web series that helps independent producers make a decent living, is one of those kids who knew what she wanted to be when she was really young – like 5 or 6 years old. Because her dad is a professor at Harvard Business School, she grew up hearing that creating a company is very important.
Despite the encouragement from her dad, Blip is actually her first entrepreneurial venture. As she says, “It was head-first, feet-first living the entire entrepreneurial experience.”
In the video below, she share her favorite part of the startup life – feeling that you’re doing something really valuable – and she offers great advice for other entrepreneurs, like “Get started and iterate.”
