The key to any startup is the quality of the team. The team is so vital to the success of any startup. A tight team that gets on, are close to each other on and off the pitch is essential and allows communication to flow with ease. Being close to each other mentally being able to get on and getting a feel for each other definitely helps in a startup in its early phases. We were all friends from beforehand and we all wanted to create something that changed the world.
