Why Being A Sole Founder Might Be Perfect For You (Or Absolutely Horrible) – with Lindsay Saewitz

by Tim Jahn on April 5, 2012

Lindsay Saewitz is the founder of CitySwam, a company that organizes social, cultural, and recreational events for young people in Chicago.  CitySwarm isn’t a traditional tech company and Lindsay isn’t the type of traditional tech-oriented founder I usually interview here.  But Lindsay is a sole founder handling all aspects of her company, including producing an average of 4 events a month, and over 30 events in her first year of business.

I wanted to learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of being a sole founder from Lindsay and her experience.  In this interview, Lindsay and I chat about:

  • the advantages and disadvantages of being a sole founder
  • the importance of staying level headed through it all
  • the importance of having mentors and advisors
  • and much more!
