Podcast with Jesse Cotari & Peretz Partensky, ImmuneBridge

I really never thought of myself as a founder type and we had this discussion about taking ownership for not just the, the company, but the struggles in ourselves. And Peretz said, ‘Look, you are a founder, act like a founder.’

– Jesse Cotari

You have the mindset that I’m going to do it. And I’m going to figure out in the process and there isn’t like a playbook for how to do it. And I think some of the elements of, you know, “founderness” are being willing to walk out on thin ice and start to figure it out along the way [without being reckless].

– Peretz Partensky
