On Friday, founder Tina Hay spoke at the Women 2.0 Founder Friday Los Angeles event at the Regus. In an intimate group, Tina shared her experiences as a real-life founder of her startup CardBlanc, a secure and free virtual debit card app now in early-access beta, addressing topics including the most important thing to focus on when you're developing a minimum viable product (MVP), challenges of raising funding, how to protect your startup in its early stages, the pros of hiring good people and cons of hiring based on price, and other lessons and common pitfalls to avoid when starting up.
