I am writing here because I would like the opinion of people that have experienced the same. I am the solo founder of a startup that entered an accelerator last year. After months of pushing through the first idea, I decided to pivot just before Demo Day.
Since then, things are going better: we have our first customer and revenue, still low (net revenue is slightly positive). However, I am running out of cash and I don’t pay myself anything from the startup. As a consequence, I am freelancing on the side to have a little income, because I have to pay for the rent & food.
I failed in finding a co-founder and securing a second round of funding (for now, we had 15k from accelerator)
I am becoming to feel really stressed and burned out (working 80h+ a week), but I don’t want to give up the baby I built and has a better chance of success now, more than ever.
Do you think that I don’t believe in my idea because I am freelancing on the side? What would be your advice for finding a co-founder?
